Recycling

The city encourages all its citizens to recycle through two programs. In a partnership with Waste Management, the City has established a recycling drop-off point.

Participants may recycle newspaper, plastic, glass, and aluminum using the bins there. For computer and household hazardous waste pick up, please call the Sanitation Department at 713-475-7884 to make an appointment for pick up.

Curbside Recycling

The City has established a curbside recycling program through Waste Management that encompasses the area south of Spencer. Also included is the area north of Spencer, west of Shaver, south of Southmore and east of Richey. Residents in these areas will now have all recyclables picked up each week on Wednesday beginning February 6, 2013 using single-stream collection. Please view this information sheet (PDF) to see what few items you need to exclude; all others may be collected in one bag.

Recycling Resources

For a very helpful indexing of recycling information including TV and computer recycle opportunities, materials recycling and other helpful information, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has a recycling website with many resources to help you Go Green.
