Best Trash will be the new trash and recycle service provider for Harris County MUD 196 beginning Saturday, October 1st 2022. Trash pickup will be Wednesdays and Saturdays. Backdoor pickup and heavy trash pickup will continue to be offered, you will only need to bring your recycle bin to the curb on trash days. Recycle pick up will be Wednesdays.

The last pickup day for Texas Pride will be Friday, September 30th 2022. Harris County MUD 196 is working with WDM and both service providers to work out logistics to pick up the black Texas Pride bins and for Best Trash to deliver new red recycle bins. This may take some time as they need to pickup and deliver bins for all MUD 196 communities, including Alder Trails, Barker Lakes, Riata Ranch and Riata West.

There will be no impact or increase in your water/sewer bills, the District manages billing and account information with the trash companies. Once Best Trash starts up service you can contact them for service questions and issues or you can contact WDM, the operator for the District.
