Changes to WCA Recycling Services

WCA is proud to be the trash provider for the residents of Pecan Grove. We would like to update the residents on some changes that have recently occurred in your neighborhood. WCA has delivered 48 gallon recycle carts as we have automated the route. Below is a list to assist you with the new process:

  1. Acceptable items that can be placed in the cart: paper, plastics (1 thru 5 & 7), cans and cardboard boxes.
  2. Carts need to be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. within 2 feet of the curb, wheels facing away from the street and no obstructions near cart.
  3. The cart is clearly marked for recycle and if a resident places trash in the cart it will not be serviced.

We will no longer service the small blue bins, and the crew has been instructed to collect as they see them out on service days.

If you have any questions, comments, or complaints regarding your garbage or recycling services, contact WCA at (281) 368-8397, or visit the website at www.wcawaste.com.

As well, you may contact the Pecan Grove MUD Customer Service Office with comments or questions at (281) 238-5000.

Mosquito Spraying at Pitts Road Park

Beginning last weekend the MUD began spraying for mosquitoes at Pitts Road Park. We want to make everyone aware of the application and also cognizant of the contents of the spray.

The product being used is poison-free, safe around children and pets, and should last up to four weeks. As stated on the manufacturer’s website, “Product, except for preservatives, is all garlic juice. It is designed to be diluted in water and sprayed on plants, grass, shrubs, flowers, ornamentals, trees, vines and in any standing water in the area including water under porches and decks.”

As to the initial smell, it continues, “Product normally becomes odorless in less than an hour.”

The company, Garlic Research Labs, also notes that the product does not harm vegetation, nor does it change the taste of any food plants. As an added benefit, it should also repel armadillos, deer, field mice, yard fleas, ticks, and geese. It does not harm bees, butterflies, birds, cats, dogs, or other small animals.

If you have any questions, please notify the Pecan Grove MUD at (281) 238-5000.

Thank you.

Parking Issues in the Neighborhood

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your assistance with some parking issues in the neighborhood. When parking in the roadway, please be aware that an emergency vehicle may need to get through. Two vehicles parked directly across from one another will, in some cases, make it impossible for a fire truck or ambulance to pass. This will delay their response to a potentially life threatening event. When parking on the street please make sure your right tires are less than 18 inches from the curb. Please avoid parking directly across from another vehicle.

We have also had some complaints about residents parked in their driveway, blocking the sidewalk. When the sidewalk is blocked, pedestrians and children on bicycles are forced into the street. Please be considerate and pull your vehicle up your driveway to clear the sidewalk.
