Solid Waste Management Department
Hurricane Harvey Recovery
Houston residents, please remember that due to the disaster debris collection efforts, the only regularly scheduled solid waste service is garbage collection. All other scheduled services – curbside recycling, yard waste and junk/tree waste – are suspended until further notice. Please do not put your green cart with recycling or yard waste bags out, they will not be collected. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we all recover together. You may still bring your recycling to any of the Neighborhood Depository and Recycling Centers; or to the Westpark Recycling Center; all of which are open 7 days a week for your convenience.
The City’s six (6) Neighborhood Depository and Recycling Centers; the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center and the Environmental Service Center will all be open seven (7) days a week. The hours at each type of facility vary, and are listed below. Residents are encouraged to bring their debris to one of the Neighborhood Depositories to assist with the clean-up.
Proof of City of Houston residency is required at the Neighborhood Depositories and the Environmental Service Center. Please bring a current Texas Driver’s License or Texas ID and a current water/utility bill or city property tax receipt. For a detailed list of the materials accepted at each location please see the website at www.houstonsolidwaste.org.
