Solid Waste Collection Due to Flooding

8/31/2017
Solid Waste Collection Schedule Due to Flooding

Houston, TX -
Houston Council Member Dave Martin would like to make city of Houston
residents aware that the Solid Waste Management Department will be
suspending some of its collection services, specifically yard waste,
recycling and junk waste/tree waste.

Department operations are to
be focused on the current public health issues confronting the city in
the wake of Hurricane Harvey's aftermath. Services for self-serve
operations will be expanded to accommodate residents who have already
begun property removal. Neighborhood depository services will
immediately move to a 7-day schedule until further notice. The
department is focusing its efforts on disaster debris efforts to speed
Houstonians property damage issues.

The Solid Waste Management
Department appreciates our customers' patience as we all recover from
the disaster. Normal collection services will resume on the schedule as
