Trash Disposal

Atascocita Forest's trash disposal service is provided by Residential Recycling & Refuse of Texas. Trash service is included in residents' water bill through Trail of the Lakes MUD. The MUD is responsible for the trash service contract; the HOA is not involved in trash service in any capacity. Please direct any questions or concerns about trash service to the service company or to Trail of the Lakes MUD.

Please help keep our neighborhood clean! Please refrain from throwing trash out of your vehicles or allowing debris to fly out of the back of your pick-up trucks. Parents, please ask your children to be courteous of our neighborhood and others while walking home and refrain from littering our streets.

Trash Service Information
