Garbage and Recycling Pickup

Recycling

Residential recycling service is provided by Texas Pride Disposal under contract with the City. The collection day for recyclables is Friday, and recycling bins should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m.

Additionally, empty empty recycling bins and trash cans should be promptly removed from curbside after pickup. Trash, trash cans, recycling bins, or rubbish should not be visible from street.

Texas Pride Disposal collects the following recyclables:

  • Newspaper – Includes the newspaper itself and any glossy inserts that are included with your Sunday paper. Please do not include other types of paper. Papers should not be tied or strapped together. If the newspaper volume is such that the bin does not provide ample space, you may place the newspaper in a brown paper bag and set it next to your bin.
  • Plastic – Plastic bottles and jugs that are marked with a No. 1 or No. 2 recycling logo. This includes milk and water jugs, soda bottles, etc. Please remove caps and rinse the containers. There is no need to remove labels.
  • Aluminum Beverage Cans – Please rinse empty cans. Crushing the cans will provide additional space for other materials in your recycling bin.
  • Bi-Metal Cans – This includes your food (tin) cans. Please rinse empty cans. There is no need to remove labels.

TRASH COLLECTION DAYS –  TUESDAY  &  FRIDAY
RECYCLE DAY IS FRIDAY
HEAVY TRASH PICK UP DAY IS FRIDAY
Please have trash out at curb by 7:00 am each pick up day.

On each regularly scheduled collection day TUESDAY and FRIDAY,  Texas Pride will collect residential refuse located at the curbside; refuse must be either in containers or bags  not weighing over 50 pounds.

Trees, shrubs, brush trimmings and fencing must be bundled in lengths no greater than 4 feet, not to exceed 50 pounds with no branch diameter exceeding 3 inches. The bundling is required to allow quick pickup and size limitations are required to avoid damaging the equipment in the crushing process.

All residential waste materials except tree and yard waste must be either in containers, bags or bundles not exceeding 50 pounds.

Items such as appliances, furniture, carpet (up to 1 room, rolled up four feet wide and less than fifty pounds), cardboard boxes (flattened), will be picked up either day.

By Federal Law, refrigerators and freezers or any other items containing Freon must be drained of Freon and have an accompanying bill to validate such service was performed.

Items excluded from normal collection are: dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. WCA will leave a tag explaining the reason for non-collected item(s).

Other than normal amounts of residential refuse, yard trimmings or bulk items, if notified in advance, Texas Pride will meet with a resident prior to collection day to determine a price. If a resident does not notify Texas Pride of such a special pick-up before its scheduled day, then Texas Pride will leave a notice for the resident to contact Contractor during normal office hours before the next scheduled pick up day.

Texas Pride will clean up any spillage that occurs during the collection or recycling process,  however, if gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that is not visible results in spillage that causes a stain, Texas Pride cannot be held responsible.

RECYCLE DAY IS EVERY FRIDAY
The City of Meadows Place takes great pride in our recycling program and so does Texas Pride, ensuring the best recycle program takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the recycle bins provided by the City of Meadows Place for recyclable materials, not as an extra trash container. Note: the recycle bins provided are the property of the City of Meadows Place.   To see a flyer of Acceptable Recyclable Materials…. Click Here
