To the Residents of Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 102:
Waste Corporation of Texas, L.P. (WCA), the Solid Waste Collector engaged by Harris County MUD No. 102, made the decision to suspend most operations for Thursday, August 31, 2017, for the greater Houston area. This decision was based on continuing high water and safety concerns. WCA is attempting to get some of its trucks out and picking up where it can. As the streets clear through the Greater Houston area, WCA anticipates site operations resuming on Friday, September 1, 2017, and being able to service its regularly scheduled Friday routes.
It will be WCA’s goal to collect putrescible waste first (this is the material that begins to break down and if left uncollected would begin to decompose in the Houston heat). WCA requests that residents separate their putrescible waste from their bulk waste to ensure proper and timely collection. (A four bag maximum, per home, will be picked up each service day).
WCA will not be collecting carpet or construction materials as regular collection related to this storm event. At this time, WCA has made the decision to suspend recycle services to all of its clients, effective immediately, for a period of two weeks.
An update from WCA is expected later today (August 31, 2017).
