Trash & Recycling Information

GFL (formerly WCA Waste Corporation) is the trash and recycling company for our community.

Customer Service: (281) 368-8397

Call the customer service number if you have questions or issues regarding your trash or recycling collection. 


Please always use an appropriate garbage can/trash container. Do not place household garbage curbside in plastic kitchen bags or grocery bags. These attract local wildlife - racoons, vultures, etc - that tear up the bags and scatter trash. The small grocery bags are too lightweight and get blown around by the wind.

Community deed restrictions prohibit placing trash or yard debris at the curb any earlier than 6:00 PM the evening before collection day.

Please help keep our neighborhood looking tidy - don't put your trash out early.

Work with your yard service to keep yard debris out of sight until trash day!

Please see the Recycling Guidelines below for a list of acceptable recycling items. 

No plastic bags of any type, no bubble-wrap, no styrofoam or foam rubber, no dirty pizza boxes, no fast food containers or cups, no light bulbs or fluorescent tubes, to name just a few items that are not acceptable recycling.

Putting such items in the recycling risks the entire truck being rejected at the recycling site.

  • Trash collection days are Mondays and Thursdays.

  • Recycling collection day is on Thursday

GFL observes the following holidays each year:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day (last Monday in May)
  • Independence Day (4th of July)
  • Labor Day (first Monday in September)
  • Thanksgiving Day (4th Thursday in November), and
  • Christmas Day (Dec 25)

    Please note that our privately contracted waste collection differs from the City of  Houston collection schedule that is often provided via local news sources, online media, etc.  Any trash and/or recycling collection for our community not collected due to one of the above holidays will be handled on the next regularly scheduled collection day for our community.
