Bulk Waste 

Bulk waste includes stoves, refrigerators, water tanks, washing machines, other white goods, furniture, large volumes of containerized waste, and similar items. Bulky waste does NOT include construction and demolition waste. If you have bulky waste that exceeds the size and weight limitations of collection, contact Waste Connections at 281-331-0810 to discuss Roll-Off Services.

White Item 

White Items include any item not measuring in excess of either two cubic yards in size or two-hundred pounds in weight and that is manufactured primarily from metal. Examples include a bathtub, heater, hot water heater, sink, washer or dryer, and refrigerator (must be certified in writing by a professional technician to have had all such refrigerants removed).

Green Waste must be appropriately bundled. Bundles are any items including trees, shrubs, and brush trimmings, forming an easily handled package not to exceed fifty (50) pounds in weight and which are securely fastened together. Bundles also must not exceed three cubic yards in total volume or eight feet in length.
