Updates and changes to garbage/recycling collection

Many of you may have already received your recycling container from Brazos Valley Recycling. Below is information on the recycling/garbage collection schedules. For any questions or comments, please email RecycleRequests@cstx.gov or call 979.764.6228.

Your recycling will now be collected by Brazos Valley Recycling on the SAME DAY AS YOUR GARBAGE, except every other week.

  • If you receive your container the week Jan. 4-8, your collection will begin the week of Jan. 18 (on your normally scheduled garbage collection day) and proceed every other week after.
  • If you receive your container the week of Jan. 11-15, your collection will begin the week of Jan. 25 (on your normally scheduled garbage collection day) and proceed every other week after.

On your designated collection day, place your full container(s) at the curb by 8 a.m. It should be about 4 feet from obstructions, including your green garbage container. After collection, the container(s) should be removed from the curb within 12 hours. 

Each household receiving a new recycling container will also receive a writable magnet with a yearly calendar that will help you keep track of all of your sanitation collection days.

City Information on Seismic survey

City staff has been made aware of concerns by some residents who did not receive sufficient notification of seismic survey work being conducted in their neighborhoods.

The companies that received permits to conduct seismic testing are responsible for notifying residents in these areas; however, it's clear that many of you didn't receive that notification. While we're told the companies are redoubling their communication efforts, here's some info that might be helpful:

·         The city permitted this seismic survey work, including the geophone equipment being placed in city rights of way (in or near your yard) and along city-maintained roads.

·         These companies are also performing seismic surveys in Brazos County and previously did so within the City of Bryan.

·         As the companies' materials describe, seismic surveys are geologic surveys of subsurface formations for oil and gas exploration. Geophones are safe, passive receivers that require no electricity and should be removed from your neighborhood within two to four weeks.

·         City right of way often extends about 11 feet behind the curb. Geophone receivers would be placed within this space.

·         City ordinance prohibits the vibroseis trucks (used to send brief sound waves into the earth) from doing work in city-owned rights of way.

·         Some private property owners may have contracted to allow sourcing on their private property.

Should you want to contact the seismic survey companies directly:

ITM                  800.492.0368

Dawson           800.332.9766

If you have additional questions, please contact College Station Planning & Development Services during business hours Monday-Friday at 979.764.3570.

Solicitor Information

The Association would like to share the following information from the College Station Police Department:

We have received a few calls and messages regarding solicitors in the area and we want to remind our citizens to call CSPD if they feel threatened or if the solicitor has violated the following:

1. It is unlawful for a person 14 years of age or older to solicit an occupant of residential premises, unrequested

a) Without first registering and obtaining an identification badge issued by the City in accordance with this section;

b) Except between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and one half-hour (1/2) after sunset;

c)If the residence conspicuously displays at or near the primary residence, a readily legible sign, bearing any of the words: "No Trespassing"/"No Peddlers"/"No Advertising"/"No Solicitation"/"No handbills."

2. It is unlawful for the registrant to allow any other person to use or wear their own City-issued indentification badge.

3. It is unlawful for any registrant or registrant's agent to represent that City's issuance of a certificate of registration or indentification badge constitutes the City's endorsement or approval of the purposes of any particular solicitation.

The most important part is to call CSPD at 979-764-3600. We can't take enforcement action if we don't know about it! They are permitted to operate  within College Station because they have not violated City Ordinance as they have been issued valid permits (always ask to see a solicitor's City Permit!!). However, that is because we aren't being called or recieving complaints.

You will need to call CSPD and report the incident so that we can respond. If we can catch them in violation or document the violations, we will be able to move forward with suspension or revocation of their permits. I hope this clarifies any questions that y'all might have.

Thanks,
