Baker's Branch Estates
Every Monday is trash, recycling and bulk pick-up. Bulk must be no larger than 3 ft x 3 ft x 6 ft in order to be picked up. Waste Management of Texas provides our trash collection and recycling service. They also offer on-call hazardous and electronic waste services. Trash and recycling carts are to be curbside by 7 am on Mondays, and according to Town Ordinance, no earlier than 8 am the day before and no later than 8 am on the day after collection day. If your trash or recycling cart is in need of repair or replacement, you can complete an online request form. More information on trash and recycling services can be found at http://www.flower-mound.com/index.aspx?NID=259.
Any concrete yard changes or additions, and any outside home additions or improvements, including painting (if changing color), need to be approved by the Architectural Control Committee, in an effort to maintain our beautiful neighborhood.

The following fence stain colors have been pre-approved by the Architectural Control Committee for re-staining of fences:
You are welcome to use a different brand, if you prefer, but we ask that you try and match one of the above colors. Also, if you would like to use a different stain color, please fill out the ACC form for approval of that color before beginning the project. The ACC form is available in Adobe Acrobat format or Microsoft Word format.
