WCA/VF WASTE SERVICES collection services were suspended the afternoon of Friday, August 25, 2017, due to the severe weather and flooding caused from Hurricane Harvey. We continue to assess serviceability of the roadways and communities on a day-to-day basis and have been updating our customers via website and email announcement blasts. If you would like to receive updates via email, please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission is to provide the best service possible to our communities, and during times like this it is our goal to collect the putrescible waste first. This is the material that begins to breakdown and if left uncollected would begin to decompose in the Houston heat. We ask that residents separate their putrescible waste from their bulk waste to ensure proper and timely collection (A four bag maximum, per home, will be picked up each service day). WCA/VF WASTE SERVICES will not be collecting carpet or construction materials as regular collection related to this storm event.
WCA/VF Waste services made the decision due to severe weather conditions, and safety concerns, to suspend operations for Wednesday, August 30, 2017, and possibly Thursday, August 31, 2017, for the greater Houston area. Bay City/Wharton/Matagorda County services will not run until the mandatory evacuation is lifted. As the storm dissipates and the streets clear through the Greater Houston Area, we anticipate site operations resuming Friday, September 1, 2017.
Please note, suspended services due to this storm event will not be made up or pushed to another service day. Safety is WCA/VF Waste Services number one concern; we hope everyone is safe during this time. We thank you for your patience and continued trust in WCA/VF Waste Services.
We will be sending out another update Wednesday, 3:00 P.M., concerning service delays or stoppage.
Please take care and be Safe this weekend during the storm.
