WCA, CFPUD’s contractor for trash service, informed us earlier this week that several of their drivers are on COVID-19 quarantine. They are implementing several temporary changes to our trash service. They were unable to provide service on Tuesday, and then postponed Friday’s service to Saturday. Late Thursday they postponed it again to Sunday. Their current plan is as follows:
- Trash pickup for this week will be on Sunday, June 7 (no service this Friday or Saturday). This will be limited to curbside only (no backdoor service), and for only household trash and yard waste. There will be no recycle or bulk (large items) pickup.
- WCA will resume a Tuesday and Friday schedule next week (June 9), but will be limited to curbside pickup for only household trash and yard waste. (No backdoor).
- Recycle and bulk pickup and backdoor service are tentatively scheduled to resume in mid June.
Additional details, including the notice from WCA, can be found on the Cypress Forest PUD website: cyforestpud.com.
We are working closely with our current contractor to get through this situation, and are taking additional action to provide consistent quality service on an ongoing basis. The district’s contract for trash collection is up for renewal. After reviewing several proposals, we are proceeding to award the new contract to Texas Pride Disposal. Pending final contract review and approval, the conversion should take place in late July. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience.
