MESSAGE FROM BEST TRASH- 3/15/2021

For the health and safety of our residents and crews, our priority is the putrescible residential waste. We will continue the collection of tied and bundled crepe myrtles, bags of grass and leaves not weighing more than 40 lbs., but with the temporary limitation of up to 3 bags per household at this time. With the high volume of yard waste, it is not possible for our crews to collect everything at every house and still make it to the landfill before it closes. We always strive to go above and beyond, but due to the current conditions, it is not possible at this time. Please be patient with us during this time while crews are working very hard to get caught up.

Best Trash contracts are for normal amounts of residential waste and recycling collection. Our contracts do not include debris removal as a result of a natural disaster. FEMA has declared the winter storm we just experienced a natural disaster. Therefore, the debris generated due to this disaster is not covered under the terms of the contracts. This would include debris removal from inside of the house as a result of flooding from broken pipes. Additionally, any landscaping removed as a result of the freeze and any landscape demolition debris would also be excluded. Past disasters including hurricanes and flood debris removal has been covered by FEMA. A few options to dispose of debris is mentioned below.

  • Please check with Waste Management to see if you are serviced by their Bagster service areas. Please go here for more information on the Bagster.
  • Please check with the Bull Bag to see if you are in an area that they service. Please click here for more information.
  • Best Trash does have the ability to provide a special collection service for debris removal. For pricing, please email your address and several clear pictures of your pile to customerservice@besttrashtexas.com to get a quote.
