CHANGE IN TRASH/DISPOSAL SERVICE

3/29/2019

Texas Pride Disposal has received the feedback provided by the community and have made some adjustments with their crews and routes to better serve the neighborhood. This includes adding additional crew members and re-balancing the routes that service all of MUD 196, including Barker Lakes, Riata Ranch and Riata West.

Homeowners & residents can also help improve the service by reviewing the following guidelines:

Tuesday = Recycle and Trash Pickup
Friday = Trash Pickup

The black Texas Pride bins are for recycling, don’t put trash in the recycling bins.
Recycling bins need to be rolled out to the curb for pickup.
Regular household trash can be placed in bins next to your residence. Trash should be in trash bags and the crews will pick those up.
Heavy trash such as lawn clippings, leaves, etc. should be placed at the curb. Branches should be bundled together.

A full list of their service guidelines are posted online  http://www.texaspridedisposal.com/service-guidelines.html

If you still have the green Waste Management bins, please contact Waste Management at https://www.wm.com/us/customer-support/service and request that they pick up the bin.

Thank you to all of our residents that have provided valuable feedback and comments. While there were many reports of issues with recycling and trash services, there were also reports that there were no issues with the service at all. With over 1000 homes in the neighborhood we expected that there would some challenges and we appreciate the attention that MUD 196 and Texas Pride has provided in addressing the concerns of our homeowners.

Waste disposal will still be “back door” service. This means you can continue to place your trash (should be in garbage bags) in your bins and leave them next to your home and the waste collection team will retrieve them from the bins. Larger items such as lawn clippings and heavy pickup can still be left at the curb.

TRASH PICKUP WILL BE ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS, TWO BULK ITEMS WILL BE ALLOWED EACH DAY.

TEXAS PRIDE DISPOSAL WILL PROVIDE 95 GALLON RECYCLE CONTAINERS, RECYCLE WILL BE PICKED UP ON TUESDAYS.

Waste Management is ending their Back Door Service and moving to a fully automated process. The MUD 196 Board voted to switch to another provider that offered back door service.
