Mayor Sylvester Turner stated, “Houstonians should be very thankful and proud of the hard work of their Solid Waste Management employees who worked tirelessly to relieve them of the debris burden and immediate stress created by the ravages of Hurricane Harvey. City debris crews were on the ground immediately after the floodwaters receded and homeowners began their road to recovery.” Solid Waste Director Harry Hayes was also very thankful and proud of the work of the department’s employees and noted that “Houston’s solid waste team is extremely dedicated to serving its community especially in their time of extreme need. Many solid waste employees suffered Harvey damage, but were on the job from day one ensuring that the community quickly recovered.”
Remember odd months are Tree Waste and even months are Junk Waste.
Harvey Storm Debris is still being collected, continue to place debris at the curb. Report uncollected storm debris to the City of Houston 3-1-1 service line.
