Single Stream Recycling Collection - Notice

A recent fire at a City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) facility seriously damaged two of the City's green recycling trucks.  The fire is under investigation and a determination is being made if the trucks are salvageable.  In the meantime, SWMD will continue to provide recycling collection service for the homes on the routes serviced by these two damaged vehicles, but will have to use blue garbage trucks that are typically assigned to collect household waste.  The trucks will be cleaned out and will not have a negative impact on the quality of the recyclables collected.  Should residents see a blue garbage truck collecting recyclables in their neighborhood they should not be alarmed as the material will be taken to the city's recycling vendor and processed in the usual manner, recyclables will not be taken to the landfill.  For questions, contact Sandra Jackson at
