WASTE COLLECTION GUIDELINES

To insure that your trash is picked up regularly and on time, please read the following detailed instructions.......

1. Please have your trash (including heavy trash if part of contract) ready by 7:00 AM on your scheduled pickup days. Make sure to place your trash within 3 feet of the curb if you have curbside service. If you have backdoor service please make sure that your trash is accessible by VF Waste employees. If you have curbside service please make sure your landscape debris and heavy/bulky trash is also placed at the curb. Generally, if you have backdoor service for regular trash you will still need to place your landscape debris and heavy/bulky trash at the curb. We recommend that you contact your community manager or VF Waste Customer Service to get specifics guidelines. Not all communities have heavy/bulky trash service as part of the contract.

2. Please do not let your trash cans or bags exceed a weight of forty five (45) pounds each when full. If you are using trash cans make sure to not use any cans that are 50 gallons or more. These large cans will get too heavy to lift. We do not require you to use trash cans if you do not want to but please refer to your association guidelines for specific rules. Further, you are not required to bag your lawn clippings in biodegradable bags at this time.

3. Branches must be tied and bundled and cut to 4 foot lengths or less and tied with a sturdy string. Each bundle must be no more than 18 inches in diameter and not weighing more than 40 pounds.

4. Remember that there is a limit on the amount of trash we will pick from your home on each scheduled trip. We recommend that you contact your community manager or VF Waste Customer Service to get specifics guidelines. Any excess trash will be collected on the next scheduled pickup day. We can also haul away all the excess debris at one time for an extra fee. Please contact our office at 713-787-9790 or email your request to vfwaste@vfwasteservices.com. You may also visit our website at www.vfwasteservices.com and upload your request.
