TDS Service Changes Effective June 1

Date posted: 12/16/2020

On June 1, Texas Disposal Systems (TDS), the District’s Solid Waste Service provider, implemented changes to recycling and curbside pickup services to better accommodate resident needs.

The MUD Board of Directors Solid Waste subcommittee worked with TDS to evaluate current service levels and provide options for future services based on the District’s Curbside and Bulky Waste Survey last fall. 

Changes to services include: 

  • Recycling will be picked up every other week instead of weekly. The District receives recycling reports from TDS monthly. Approximately 90% of District recycling carts picked up weekly were not full, and “contained air,” per the report. Based on usage, the change was implemented. If you require an additional recycling cart for your recyclables, please contact TDS at (800) 375-8375 to order one.
  • Curbside Bulky Waste Pick Up will change from six (6) pickups to three (3) pickups annually. To schedule a bulky pickup, call TDS at (800) 375-8375. A list of accepted items is included on the TDS website at
  • Two Community Cleanups will be scheduled during the calendar year at Jumano Park for residents who prefer to bring bulky waste to a drop off location.  The cleanup day will still have specific guidelines for items that will and will not be accepted. Residents will need to provide a water bill and photo ID in order to dispose of waste.  
There are no changes to regular weekly trash service. Residents will still have trash picked up curbside once each week. TDS will pick up four (4) additional items or bags of trash each week placed next to your cart.

For other notifications about service updates, download the TDS Waste Wizard app! The app gives you reminders about your service date and any changes, such as holiday scheduling, delays due to severe weather, and more.

Please watch the District’s website for information about the Community Cleanup day tentatively scheduled in June.
