Pecan Grove Christmas Tree Recycle Days

Let Us Recycle Those Christmas Trees!

Once again, the District will pick up – and recycle – all clean Christmas trees placed curbside. The dates for recycling are:

  • Thursday, January 7th
  • Thursday, January 14th

Please remove your tree base and make sure your tree is not over 5 feet in height before placing your tree curbside. Trees with flocking, lights, ornaments or other decorations can not be recycled, so place only clean trees at the curb by 7:00am. Please do your part this Holiday season to cut down on the unnecessary use of landfill space. We also encourage you – throughout the year – to fill up those curbside recycling bins. For items not accepted in bins, call or visit the Fort Bend County Recycle/Environmental Center at 1200 Blume Road, on the western edge of the Rosenberg city limits.

Hours of operation at the Fort Bend County Recycle / Environmental Center are:

  • Recycling:
    • Monday through Saturday 8:00am – 4:00pm (except holidays)
    • Closed on Wednesdays
  • Household Hazardous Waste:
    • Mondays 9:00am – 6:00pm
    • 1st Saturday of each month 8:00am – 2:00pm

The automated Recycling / Household Hazardous Waste information telephone line is 281-633-7527.

More information can be found on our web site,, where we have a link to the Fort Bend County Recycle / Environmental Center website.

Recycle and Bulk Pickup Resumed August 24

Effective Monday, August 24, recycle and bulk pickup service has been resumed.

Large recycle containers will remain in Pecan Grove Park on Pitts Road until Friday, August 28.

Pecan Grove MUD apologizes for this tardy notification. WCA informed us of the resumption of service a little after noon August 24.

Recycle and Bulk Pickup Suspended

We have been notified by WCA, our waste disposal company, that their work force has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 again.

Effective Monday August 10, 2020, recycling will be suspended in Pecan Grove until they can get their employees back from illness.

As an alternative, by noon August 10 there will be large roll-off containers placed at the back of Pecan Grove Park on Pitts Road, just south of our levee.

You can place your recycling (no trash or bulk) in these containers any day of the week during daylight hours when the park is open.

In addition to no recycling, there will be no bulk waste pickup during this service suspension.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.

Pecan Grove MUD

Recycle Pickup Resumes April 20

Dear PGMUD Resident:

Pecan Grove MUD has been advised by our trash hauling company, WCA, that recycle collection will resume on Monday, April 20. Until April 20 recyclables may continue to be taken to the container in Pecan Grove Park on Pitts Road.

Please see the WCA announcement below:

Announcement From PGMUD’s Trash Collection Company

Please share this news with your neighbors who may not be getting these email blasts and may not be reviewing the website.

At WCA our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of our customers and staff during an evolving situation. Last night we learned that one of our drivers has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. As a precaution the helpers and other drivers who have been in close contact with this driver have been quarantined.

How This Will Affect Your Service

For now, our priority will shift to collect the normal household waste first. This is the material that begins to breakdown and decompose first in the Houston heat. This means that residents need to separate their normal household waste from their bulk waste to ensure proper and timely collection.

A two-item maximum for bulk, per home, will be picked up on your scheduled service day. WCA will not be collecting carpet or construction materials as regular collection related to this event.

We are suspending recycle service until further notice.

  • As an alternative the Fort Bend Recycle and Environmental Center, located at 1200 Blume Rd, Rosenberg, Texas, will accept the following on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as self-serve drop off only between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
    • Acceptable Items
      • Cardboard
      • Paper
      • Glass
      • Plastics number 1 & 2

Please note suspended services due to this event will not be made up or pushed to another service day.

WCA Waste Services made these decisions due to the severity of the conditions, and safety concerns to our community and the WCA family. We thank you for your partnership and for your patience and continued trust in WCA/VF Waste Services.

WCA Trash Issues

WCA, the District’s trash service provider, is currently experiencing difficulties with their operating systems and in some cases their phone service. Normal collection service may be delayed and communication may be limited while they work to restore their normal operations. WCA appreciates your patience and will provide updates as they come available.
