Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, tile, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. Please do not dispose of gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items in a container that are not visible to Best Trash personnel.

Best Trash takes great pride in our recycle program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the provided recycle cart for recyclable materials. The green recycle cart is NOT an extra trash container and will NOT be emptied as such. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to the cart well marked as recyclable materials. Cardboard is recyclable, please break down all boxes flat, and place them next to the recycle cart for collection.

Fort Bend MUD 23 has partnered with Simple Recycling to provide residents with a FREE curbside textile recycling service. The program makes for easier disposal of unwanted items in an environmentally friendly way.
Simple Recycling provides residents with pink bags that can be filled and placed curbside on regular recycling collection days.
- New or used clothing Boots/shoes
- Small kitchen appliances.
A full list of accepted items can be found on the company’s website, simplerecycling.com.
When Simple Recycling picks up the pink recycling bags, they will leave bags for future use. Regular garbage bags (clearly marked for Simple Recycling) can be used if a resident does not have a pink bag. Additionally, pink bag requests can be made on the company’s website.
The Ohio-based for-profit company serves millions of households across the United States and is used by other neighborhoods and MUDs in our area.
According to the Simple Recycling website, all of the materials they collect are graded and sorted locally and/or regionally based on quality and condition. The top-quality materials will be resold to local thrift outlets; mid-grade items are exported to international markets and
“unusable” items are processed for raw materials.
