WCA Waste to Resume Regular Solid Waste Friday, Sept. 1;
Storm Debris Serviced On Separate Schedule

WCA/VF Waste Services will resume regular service for solid waste that is placed in the blue cart. Please place your cart out at the curb in the same manner as you normally do. Recycling services will be suspended until Monday, Sept. 11, when they will resume as normal for all customers citywide.

Regular service will also take place on Monday, Sept. 4, for all customers on Labor Day. Please note, suspended WCA/VF Waste Services due to this storm event will not be made up or pushed to another service day.  Safety is WCA/VF Waste Services’ number one concern; they hope everyone is safe during this time.

WCA/VF Waste Services commercial collection service is operating on a limited basis. They are only collecting trash from hospitals, apartments, restaurants, and convenience stores. Normal operations will begin very soon.

All storm debris, including hazardous waste and construction debris, will be serviced on a separate schedule to be determined on a later date; details will be shared with residents when finalized. Please reference the above FEMA graphic for clarification regarding different debris types. City staff are finalizing details with the County and will notify residents of proper procedures when an announcement is ready regarding storm debris pickup.

WCA/VF Waste Services were suspended the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 25, due to the severe weather and flooding caused from Harvey. WCA/VF Waste has been continuing to assess serviceability of the roadways and communities on a day-to-day basis and have been updating customers via their website and email announcement blasts.  If you would like to receive updates, please register by sending an email to

WCA/VF Waste Services mission is to provide the best service possible to communities, and during times like this, it is their goal to first collect putrescible waste, which is the material that begins to breakdown and, if left uncollected, would begin to decompose in the Houston heat.

WCA/VF Waste Services asks 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/VF Waste Services will not be collecting carpet or construction materials as regular collection related to this storm event. More details will be published at a later date.

WCA/VF Waste Services customer service line is 281.403.5800; due to the storm, residents may experience a delay in service while calling the line, but all questions and concerns will be addressed.
