Automated Collection

In a combined effort, WCA Waste Corporation and Memorial MUD would like to take this opportunity to explain how your automated trash collection service works. WCA is the trash collection company hired by Memorial MUD to provide trash collection services for the residents. WCA provides each resident with 2 roll-out poly collection containers; a blue 95-gallon container for household waste and a grey 65-gallon container for recycling.

However, in order for the automated system to work effectively and consistently, it is important that each of us follow the collection procedures outlined below.

Items excluded from normal collection are dirt, rocks, bricks, concrete, tires, batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, refrigeration freon, waste generated by a private contractor or any materials or items deemed hazardous materials. WCA will leave you a tag explaining the reason for any non-collected item(s).

If your needs exceed the normal amount of residential waste, yard trimmings or bulk items, please contact WCA in advance and they will meet you prior to the collection day to determine a price for special pick-up. If you do not notify WCA of a special pick-up before its scheduled day, then WCA will leave a notice asking you to contact them during normal office hours, but before the next scheduled pickup day.

WCA will clean up any spillage that occurs during the collection process. However, if liquid items such as gasoline, motor oil, paints, cooking oil, or any other liquid items that are not visible to the WCA employee spills and causes a stain, WCA cannot be held responsible.

  • Cans must be placed with handle facing away from the street and wheels against the curb (as seen in the illustration).
  • Cans must be at curb before 7am on collection days and kept there until 7pm
  • Do not place containers too close to mailboxes, parked cars or other objects.
  • Allow ample surrounding space so the automated lifting mechanism can be attached around the container and lifted.
  • Only the uniquely designed WCA poly collection containers will be picked up.
  • Bagging trash will help prevent trash from blowing when it is emptied. It also helps with maintaining the cleanliness of the container.
