Beginning on November 1, 2015, the new trash contractor for residents living in West Travis Co. MUD 5 will be Texas Disposal Systems. This change was prompted by the desire for better service as the previous vendor was not responsive to requests for improvements to their service, and because the rest of Lake Pointe is already using Texas Disposal Systems, this change will allow the whole neighborhood to use the same vendor now.
Below are some important details to note regarding this change.
- TDS will begin trash pick up on Tuesday, November 3, 2015
- TDS will begin recycling pick up on Tuesday, November 10, 2015
- The current company (Progressive/IESI) will continue service through October 31st. If you are billed by Progressive past this date, you should contact Progressive about the charge.
- TDS will bill before Nov 1st. Please contact TDS if you are billed for service in October.
- Trash will be be picked up weekly, recycling every other week.
- TDS will deliver new trash and recycling cans on Friday, 23 October.
- TDS will bill in advance in 3 month increments, so the first bill will include service for November, December, and January.
- The cost for TDS service will be $51.15 every 3 months, or $17.05 per month.
