What does it take to recycle in Houston?
Buildings are responsible for a large amount of waste. The City is in the final stages of expanding curbside recycling to all residential customers with City of Houston collection. We'd like to have even more participants. How about your office? Your apartment? What are the obstacles to recycling? What can your recycle? What about composting? Bring your questions, we'll see what kind of answers we can provide.
