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.
In light of the recent ice storm, the MUD Board has advised residents to contact the Piecing in reference to storm debris removal. More information can be found here.
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.

Recycling is picked up on Thursday of each week. Items for recycling should be placed in designated blue recycling containers (provided to residents by the waste service company 30-60 days after water account has been set up). Please note that recycling items should be clearly separate from regular trash. If you do not yet have a recycling container, or if you have more recycling items than will fit in the recycling bin, please use clear, white or blue plastic bags for overflow items. Residential Recycling will not collect recycling items that are placed in black bags. Collection workers must be able to visually confirm the bags' contents as recycling material or it will not be picked up. Please note that you are not required to different types of recycling items (e.g. paper, glass, plastic, etc.) into separate containers.
Although batteries, lightbulbs, and electronics are recyclable, please do not place them in your recycling to be picked up by RRRT. Click here to find a recycling location in Harris county for items not picked up by the waste service company.
