WCA Service Updates

Attention to WCA Customers,

At WCA, our highest priority during the COVID pandemic continues to be the health and well-being of our customers and staff. In recent days, several of our residential drivers from our South Houston Hauling Division have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. In accordance with recommended CDC guidelines, the helpers and other drivers who have been in close contact with these drivers are being quarantined.

Area Affected

Our South Houston Hauling Division, which provides waste collection services South of 290, up through downtown, and as far south as Missouri City, Texas, has been impacted by these health precautions, this includes our Bay City Hauling Division. All other Divisions of WCA/VF Waste Services will continue to operate business as usual. If your community resides in our South Houston or Bay City Hauling Division’s geographical boundary, it is possible your regular collection services will be temporarily affected. We are confident our collection crews will be back to full staffing shortly and any service disruption will be minimal.

Update from WCA Waste Regarding Garbage and Recycling Collection in Response to COVID-19

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 Will This Affect Your Service?

WCA provides an essential service for the Houston Metroplex and our mission is to provide the best service possible to our communities. For now, our priority will shift to collect the putrescible 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 putrescible waste from their bulk waste to ensure proper and timely collection.  A two-bag maximum for bulk, per home, will be picked on your scheduled service day.  WCA/VF Waste Services will not be collecting carpet or construction materials as regular collection related to this event.

Recycle Services (*Please see exceptions below):

Effective Tuesday, March 31, 2020 – Until Further Notice

  • We are suspending recycle service for the greater Houston area.

Please Note: Suspended services due to this event will not be made up or pushed to another service day.

WCA/VF 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.

Please take care and be safe throughout the remainder of this event.

Sincerely,

WCA/VF Waste Services Municipal Department
