The following are general guidelines:

  • Items must be at the curbside by 7:00 AM
  • Construction material will be picked up. Such as sheetrock, insulation, wood, flooring, carpet (rolled up and bound, no wider than 4 feet, and does not weigh more than 40 pounds, etc.)

Please keep in mind that helpers will be physically loading these items in the truck by hand. If items are stacked too high, they will not be unable to load those items in the truck.

Bulk or Yard Waste – Due to Winter Storm Event

Dear Residents of Remington MUD 1 (Stone Gate),

Since the freeze, we are averaging 2,000 more tons per week, and this is only out of our Highway 6 location, which services your community.  This averages out to an extra load per residential route per day.

This has caused a few obstacles for WCA/GFL:

  1. Our crews are not able to work as quickly as they normally do.
  2. This causes longer than normal wait times at the landfill and recycling centers.

We understand that everyone is trying to clean up their yards from the freeze, and now Spring is here!  As a temporary measure, please limit the bags that you place out for the next few weeks.  This would be very helpful and appreciated.  A good limit at this time, would be one (1) cubic foot, which is equivalent to three (3) sixty (60) gallon bags.

We understand the frustration and want to get everything serviced as much as you do.  Keep in mind this is an industry problem, not just for WCA/GFL.

As a reminder the following are not acceptable items for bulk or heavy trash.

  • Construction Debris
  • Sheetrock
  • Drywall
  • Insulation
  • Metal items (includes recliners or sofa sleepers)
  • Wood (includes wood Fencing)
  • Stone or Tile
  • Dirt
  • Concrete
  • Propane tanks Tires

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact customer service.



Thank you.

Boil Water Notice Rescinded

On February 16, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Remington MUD 1 public water system, TX1013074, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of today, February 21, 2021.

According to the District’s Operator, customers can resume water use as normal. There is no need to flush lines.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Inframark, the operator for Remington MUD 1, at our 24-hour Customer Service Line (281) 398-8211.

WHCRWA Water System Situational Update

Remington Municipal Utility District No. 1 purchases water from the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA). As of Friday afternoon, Feb. 19, the WHCRWA continues to do everything possible to restore water supply to our utility district customers.

A boil water notice continues to be in effect, and we are working with the City of Houston to pressurize the waterline that supplies the WHCRWA Pump Station.

Currently, the WHCRWA is receiving only a fraction of its contracted amount of surface water from the City of Houston waterline. However, as of 4 p.m., the WHCRWA received enough supply to begin delivering emergency water to some MUDs experiencing critically low water supplies.

The WHCRWA continues to provide as much water as possible to our utility district customers during this time, while trying to maintain adequate pressures within our system. The WHCRWA Pump Station is currently monitored twenty-four hours a day, and constant communication is maintained with the operators on issues at our utility district facilities.

We do not currently have an estimated delivery time for restored service. Once adequate water supply has been received from the City of Houston, the WHCRWA will provide water to its utility district customers as quickly as possible.

Updates will be provided as more information is available.

Important Message from the Board of Directors of Remington MUD No. 1

In light of more people staying home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with local schools letting out for summer break, there has been an increase in people walking and bicycling through our community. The Board wants to draw everyone’s attention to the map below. Please stay off the sites colored in red and use the other sites only in accordance with the map’s legend. Board members and District consultants have seen people accessing the red sites with motorized vehicles (such as ATVs, motorcycles, four wheelers, and three wheelers). These activities are dangerous to the riders and the structural integrity of these drainage facilities. Repairing damage to these facilities from such activities costs you, the residents. Additionally, such activities are illegal. Trespassing on and/or damaging District property is punishable by civil and criminal penalties. If you see people trespassing on the red sites or misusing or damaging any of the sites on the map below, please call the Harris County Sherriff’s Office at 713-221-6000.
