Harris County Storm Debris Removal
& Best Trash Collection Guidelines

The MUD 81 Board understands that many residents were affected by last week's severe storm. There are numerous federal, state, and local resources that are or will become available in the coming weeks to help with the recovery. One important resource is Harris County's curbside storm debris removal program. Please see the graphic below for information on how to sort storm debris for curbside collection by Harris County's crews. Please be patient as the County's collection efforts may take multiple weeks to complete. To report home damage and request debris pick up, please call Harris County's Debris Hotline, at (713) 274-3880, or e-mail homeflooding@harriscountytx.gov.

Please separate your storm debris from your household garbage. As a reminder, here are Best Trash's collection guidelines for tree debris: Tree limbs may not exceed 4 inches in diameter, no longer than 4 feet and tied and bundled not heavier than 40 lbs. and separated to show they are tied/bundled. Crews may collect up to 3 bundles each service day. We ask that residents be patient during times like this as Best Trash has instructed their crews to prioritize the household trash and then the storm debris. For any questions or for more information, please contact Best Trash, at (281) 313-2378, or visit hcmud81.com/trash.html.
