Hello,

Amongst all the interesting topics on this forum. I'd like to ask a mundane question: Who pays for garbage collection?

Is it landlord, tenant, or is it a municipal service attached to the property? We've just relocated from London, UK to The Woodlands and poring through lease contracts when I came across a point that states tenant are responsible for costs of the garbage collection! Clarification appreciated.

I don't know about The Woodlands, but I believe in most places, it's included in the utilities bills.

Our old neighborhood in the Katy area used Waste Management as well. The fee was included as part of our HOA fees, which we paid once a year. The HOA then paid Waste Management.

Normally, it's in your water utility bill. If not, then it's usually part of the HOA assessment paid by the owner.

In Atascocita it is rolled into the water bill. In Kingwood you pay Waste Management directly, they bill quarterly. If your leasing and the lease states you are responsible (I assume this must be a leased home) then you need to set up an account with your local provider for service.
