Weekly Garbage Collection
Weekly trash collection is provided by the City of Houston every Tuesday.
Recycling is every other Tuesday on the Tuesday-B schedule. Place green bins out on curb no earlier than 6 pm the day before (usually Monday evening) and remove them by 10 pm on the day of pick-up. Remember to place trash and recycling bins at least 3 feet apart to ensure minimizing damage to your bins.
