It is our goal to have all recycling routes back up and running by next week, September 11, 2017. Collecting trash is the first priority due to it's potential to cause damage the longer it stays around. There were some neighborhoods that experienced no damage but most of our communities had massive losses. We appreciate your patience as we return to our scheduled services over the next few weeks.
Again, it is important to keep your household garbage separated from storm debris. The separation avoids any safety hazards and spoilage.
Keep an eye on your children and pets when they are around any waste.
Keep a safe distance behind trucks loaded with debris in case of any material that may fly out.
Keep sidewalks and roadways as clear as possible so that your other waste can be picked up quickly and in a safe environment.
Keep all residential and guest vehicles at a safe distance from all waste piles.
Avoid placing debris near trees, poles or other structures.We appreciate you as our RRRTX customer and are here to help with any questions or concerns you may have.

Storm Debris Must be Separated from Residential Garbage
As residents start the road to recovery after Hurricane Harvey, Residential Recycling & Refuse of Texas (RRRTX) is here to help speed up the cleanup process. Residential garbage and storm debris are collected by two separate parties. FEMA is responsible for collecting storm debris. RRRTX is responsible for collecting household garbage. In order to remove waste off of your property in a safe and expedited manner, it is important to keep the two waste piles separated. Please see below for further guidelines on proper debris removal.
Your household garbage will continue to be picked up by RRRTX. Strom debris is managed by your city, county or area, per FEMA. Check your city or MUD/HUD news bulletins for scheduled pick up times and further requirements.
There are six categories into which waste must be separated. See FEMA photo below for reference.
1. Household Garbage: anything you would normally place on the curb on trash day.
2. Construction Debris: anything you have to tear out due to water damage.
3. Vegetative Debris: Tree branches, leaves, logs, plants
4. Hazardous Waste: Includes dangerous chemicals, batteries, pesticides. (Click here to see more).
5. Large Appliances: Includes refrigerators, dishwasher, damaged AC units, etc.
6. Electronics: Things such as computers, TVs or radios
