Houston Curbside Recycling Resumes on Tuesday, Nov. 21st

Curbside recycling will resume for University Oaks on Tuesday, November 21, 2017.

The City of Houston would like everyone to help with this continued service by remembering these seven items about curbside recycling: 

1. No Hurricane Harvey Debris should be in the recycling cart, even if residents used their carts to haul demolition material to the curb after Harvey. Material of that type is not recyclable and is considered trash and should be taken from the green recycling bin and transferred to the black trash bin for collection.

2. Recycled items should be loose and not bagged when placed in the green bin. Loose material speeds the processing line and ensures that contamination is kept at a minimum.

3. Glass is not accepted at this time and should be taken to a convenient drop-off site.

4. Junk Waste and Yard Waste services remain suspended until further notice as crews work on Harvey debris removal.

5. All city drop-off locations continue to work on a seven-day schedule. The sites include the Neighborhood Depositories, Westpark Recycling Center and the Environmental Service Center. Remember to check with 3-1-1 or the department's webpage for operating hours.
