The 2022 heavy trash and brush schedule has been released. This schedule will help residents understand when heavy trash is in their neighborhood. We've also placed as an image and a PDF copy on our household garbage and heavy trash website pages. It has also been posted on social media. Search for it with hashtag #LJHeavyTrashSchedule.
We will also be sending this schedule in our residential water bills.If you need any help understanding the schedule or when heavy trash will be collected in your neighborhood, you can always call us at 979.415.2400 and we'll be happy to talk to you about it.
Recently, some of our sanitary workers have become ill. As a result, we are working with a diminished number of crew members and are prioritizing our teams to household garbage collection.
We ask our residents to refrain from setting out heavy trash for the next TWO WEEKS (until Jan. 18) because we expect delays in its removal.
If you do set out heavy trash, it will likely not be removed during your scheduled pickup week.
Our convenience center is open, and anyone can take their large or heavy trash to it during regular business hours.
We do not expect this situation to affect the regular household garbage schedule. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through the effects of this global pandemic.
We don’t mind collecting heavy trash. We think it helps keep our neighborhoods clean and provides an important service our residents really appreciate. BUT…we don’t want our residents to put it out on the wrong day! To help residents understand when to put out heavy trash, we have started the RED TAG campaign. Our crews will be observing our streets on a regular basis and leaving RED TAGS on the doors of residents who have put out heavy trash on the wrong day. The tags also explains when heavy trash is collected in the neighborhood and that citations can be issued for repeat offenders. To make sure you understand when heavy trash is collected – and when it isn’t – visit our heavy trash website and put yours out when the crews are actually on your street.
Bathrooms can operate different during heavy rains. Big city trucks start working inside manholes in your neighborhood. Road crews are doing work in downtown and barricades are rerouting traffic.
You might wonder why is this happening!
The answers to these questions and more are answered in our series "How We Work for You." It's our effort to show you how and why we operate with you in mind.
