Community Amenities

Here you will find information about the amenities available within the community and the surrounding area.

Patrol Service
Over half of the annual MFCC Assessment (dues) goes to pay for the Constable Patrol for our area (we join with several area neighborhoods to pay for this collectively). If you ever have questions or concerns about the patrol or about something you feel needs police attention, call the Constable’s office at 281-463-6666If there is an emergency in progress call 911. After an incident, call the Constable’s Office for the fastest response. You may also call the Houston Police Department at 713-222-3131; tell them you are located in Police Beat 462. (Bunker Hill residents may call the Villages Police at 713-468-7878.)  Again, if it is an emergency in progress, dial 911!

Backdoor Garbage Pick-Up Service
Memorial Forest residents in Houston have private trash collection provided by Republic Waste Services, which picks up on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This is paid partially through a rebate from the City of Houston, but residents must also pay a quarterly bill from Republic. If you are receiving Republic service and are not paying a bill, you are subject to having your service cut-off. To prevent this from happening, please call Republic at 281-446-2030.

Memorial Forest residents in Bunker Hill Village have trash pickup provided by Republic as well, but on Mondays and Thursdays. Additionally, recycling is provided every Wednesday. Please see for more information.

Republic allows for 8 containers per household (including yard clippings) to be picked up at the back of the driveway on each pickup day.  Any additional containers will be picked up curbside.  Trash should not be placed curbside before 6 PM the night before pickup.  No garbage will be picked up inside the garage.  Each Saturday (Thursday for BHV residents) is designated as heavy waste collection day and includes such items as appliances, furniture, etc. which are to be placed curbside.  NO CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS.  Construction materials or other items not covered by the above may be arranged to be removed by calling direct to Republic Waste Services, 281-446-2030.  An additional charge is made for this service.

Mosquito Control
The Memorial Forest Civic Club pays for all streets in the neighborhood to be sprayed for mosquitoes each week, from April through November.  (The truck usually sprays on Thursday nights around 9 PM).  To help keep mosquitoes under control the Harris County Mosquito Control also suggests:

  • Eliminate all containers that may hold water or empty them at least twice a week.
  • Keep your lawn mowed.  Mosquitoes love to rest in tall grass during the day.
  • Use a yellow outside light.  Mosquitoes that bite are attracted to light but cannot see yellow wavelengths.

Any resident who feels his/her area is especially bothered by mosquitoes should call the Mosquito Control Committee (please see the front of your directory for the number).  

Trash or Garden Refuse
It is unlawful for anyone to deposit trash or garden cuttings along the flood control ditch, on school property, or in any culvert or storm sewer.

City ordinances require that all dogs must be leashed or fenced and not permitted to run loose without direct supervision of the owner.  Any questions should be referred to the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care, 713-238-9600. 

Door-to-Door Solicitors
The resident is the only control over solicitors. “NO SOLICITOR” signs may be helpful. Suspicious solicitors should always be reported to the Constable Patrol Office at 281-463-6666. 

Placing signs on the esplanade is forbidden by city ordinance.  Signs placed at the entrance at Memorial Drive are forbidden by Bunker Hill ordinance.  Violations of these ordinances and Deed Restrictions also conflict with maintenance efforts by MFCC.

Garage Sales                                   
The holding of garage sales within the subdivision is a violation of the Deed Restrictions.  Garage sales has been interpreted to include specifically estate sales and other kinds of advertised sales that request people to come to the house to purchase items other than for single item sales, such as cars.

Esplanade and Entrance Maintenance
The Gessner esplanade is maintained in cooperation with Frostwood and Memorial Hollow Civic Clubs. The MFCC maintains the section from Cobblestone to Pebblebrook.
