COVID-19 Update – Please Bag All Trash

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.

Please do not call the office. Go to website www.best-trash.com for updates or contact customerservice@besttrashtexas.com.

Recommendations for Park Users and Observing Social Distancing Minimums

Fort Bend MUD #118 is actively monitoring developments around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and how it is and may impact District parks. The District is asking residents to adhere to all guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and your local public health officials for the most up-to-date information. To maximize the safety and health of all Fort Bend MUD #118 residents, visitors to District parks should adhere to the following guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to heading to parks and trails – wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, do not use parks or trails if you have symptoms, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, etc.
  • Avoid gathering in groups of 10 or more.
  • Residents should avoid utilizing playground equipment, picnic tables and other commonly touched surfaces.
  • Observe at all times the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people. Practice it and know what it looks like. Keep it as you walk, bike or hike.
  • Warn other park and trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance, and step off trails and sidewalks to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
  • Bring water or drinks — public drinking fountains may be disabled and should not be used, even if operable.

While District Parks remain open, we ask that all residents visiting these public spaces to exercise good hygiene and best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce ways the virus is transmitted.
