Backdoor Garbage Pick-Up Service

Memorial Forest residents in Houston have private trash collection provided by Residential Recycling & Refuse of Texas (RRRT).   Residents pay for the service through the Civic Association’s “annual assessment”. The fee is based on the RRRT’s pricing and is reduced, modestly, through a rebate from the City of Houston.

If you are receiving service and have not paid your assessment, you are subject to having your service cut-off.   

Memorial Forest residents who reside in Bunker Hill Village have trash pickup provided by Republic Waste.
