Garbage Collection Guidelines

Pursuant to Harris County MUD 71’s agreement with its garbage and recycling provider, Best Trash, trash cans are limited to 40 gallons in size, and the total weight of each can must not exceed 40 pounds.  Residents may have more than one trash can as long as each trash can does not exceed 40 gallons or 40 pounds.  Please note that barrels, drums, and/or collapsible containers are not accepted.

Best Trash provides twice a week trash collection to MUD 71 residents, so residents are encouraged to put trash out both service days to avoid an overflow of trash bags.  Please do not use any trash cans larger than 40 gallons or weighing more than 40 pounds, as they may not be emptied and will be tagged stating that they exceed the size limit.

For more information regarding the garbage collection guidelines, please visit or contact Best Trash by phone, at (281) 313-2378, or by e-mail, at  The District appreciates your assistance with this matter.
