Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property. The change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in the taxable value of all other property determines the distribution of the tax burden among all property owners.

For the health and safety of our residents and crews, Best Trash’s priority is the putrescible residential waste. Best Trash will continue the collection of tied and bundled crepe myrtles, bags of grass and leaves not weighing more than 40 lbs., but with the temporary limitation of up to 3 bags per household at this time. With the high volume of yard waste, it is not possible for the Best Trash crews to collect everything at every house and still make it to the landfill before it closes. Best Trash always strives to go above and beyond, but due to the current conditions, it is not possible at this time. Please be patient with Best Trash during this time while crews are working very hard to get caught up.
Best Trash contracts are for normal amounts of residential waste and recycling collection. Our contracts do not include debris removal as a result of a natural disaster. FEMA has declared the winter storm we just experienced a natural disaster. Therefore, the debris generated due to this disaster is not covered under the terms of the contracts. This would include debris removal from inside of the house as a result of flooding from broken pipes. Additionally, any landscaping removed as a result of the freeze and any landscape demolition debris would also be excluded. Past disasters including hurricanes and flood debris removal has been covered by FEMA. A few options to dispose of debris is mentioned below.

How do public water systems protect against Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba?
All public water systems are required to maintain specific disinfection levels that are scientifically proven to kill micro-organisms including Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba, at both water plants and in distribution systems. Additionally, public water systems are required to implement cross-connection control measures to protect the system.
Does the State of Texas regulate how public water systems protect the water supply?
Yes, the level of disinfection and cross connection measures are established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and enforced by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Are the disinfection levels in a public water system regularly checked?
Yes, public water systems are required to check disinfection levels at water plants and throughout the communities at various locations representative of the entire distribution system to ensure compliance with EPA/TCEQ regulations.
Do public water systems specifically test for Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba?
Proper disinfection levels that meet the EPA/TCEQ’s standards eliminate the presence of micro-organisms including Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba. Specific tests for Naegleria Fowleri Amoeba are not required by EPA/TCEQ and are not readily available within reasonable timeframes.

Currently trash & recycle services will continue as normal.
Please refrain from generating additional heavy trash, such as cleaning garages, closets, extra yard work, etc. Due to extra volumes, trash is extremely heavy and our routes are running later than normal. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get all trash collected.
In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any need for direct contact with the garbage.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. Please break down all boxes and reduce in size as much as possible. If you exceed the capacity of the container, please bag and place with trash. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.

Trash collection services will continue as normal, but we are experiencing an increase in the amount of residential solid waste as a result of residents spending more time at home. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get everyone collected.
Green waste collection will continue; however we anticipate delays in service. By taking the following steps, residents can help minimize these delays:
- Mulch leaves and grass clippings instead of bagging them for disposal.
- Limit the amount of pruning and tree trimming to only what is essential.
- If utilizing a landscaping company, ensure all green waste is collected and hauled off by the contractor.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.
