Trash Update

(Excerpt from meeting on January 9, 2023)

At their meeting on January 9, 2023, the Board of Directors (“Board”) of Cypress-Klein Utility District (the “Water District”), the Board addressed with Mr. Alex Schmid of Texas Pride Disposal the trash issues the Water District is experiencing with Texas Pride, including continuous missed collection days, late collection and no recycling.

Mr. Schmid assured the Water District that Texas Pride is committed to providing services to the Water District as stipulated in the contract with the Water District. He added that the problems Texas Pride is experiencing with weather conditions, holidays and staffing are being addressed; and that services will resume to “normal” conditions this week. Mr. Schmid informed the Board that Texas Pride will provide reimbursement to the Water District for missed collection days. The Board then recognized various members of the public, who addressed questions to Mr. Schmid concerning trash collection. The Board agreed to solicit trash proposals to consider at their meeting on February 13, 2023.
