Monday, March 28, 2018 - It has been 6 months since Hurricane Harvey devastated the lives of many of the residents of the City of Houston. Today, many of our neighbors are still just returning to rebuild their homes. The Solid Waste Management Department is continuing to collect material that has been generated due to leaking roofs, damaged outdoor property improvements and green waste from fallen or broken trees and vegetation. Avoid any health hazards and DO NOT hold on to your piles in backyards, inside your home or garages.
We ask residents to continue to Place Your Debris Out On The Curb, regardless of the size of the pile.
Materials that can be placed on the curb:
Make a positive impact and lend a helping hand to your neighbors. Keep in mind your community neighbors who may be elderly or disabled by offering to help them with their house clean-out and moving their debris to the curb. You can also help by reporting uncollected storm debris to the City of Houston 3-1-1 service line. Your neighborly actions greatly help the City with storm debris removal efforts. If you cannot assist your neighbors yourself, please utilize the resources listed below for assistance:
