Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD)
Updated Single Stream Recycling Collection Schedule

HOUSTON – ** Due to our busy holiday season and higher volumes at the curb, we’ve fallen a bit behind the posted recycling collections schedule. All available automated service crews are working diligently to ensure collection of your garbage (black can).

We anticipated minor delays due to the holidays, but as a result of some nagging equipment issues we have been additionally challenged. City Council recently approved the purchase of 69 new pieces of equipment which will arrive during the summer. Customers should monitor social media outlets and the 3-1-1 customer service center to receive regular status updates.

We thank you for your patience as we move beyond these issues. If you desire, you may utilize one of the six (6) neighborhood depositories closest to your home.
