Thursday, March 1, 2018 City Crews return to regular Tree/Junk Schedule


The Solid Waste Management Department will temporarily suspend city crews collecting Hurricane Harvey storm debris effective February 28, 2018. Contracted storm debris crews will remain in place until further notice. City Junk Waste/Tree Waste crews will resume the regularly scheduled Tree Waste and Junk Waste collections effective March 1, 2018.

Mayor Sylvester Turner stated, “Houstonians should be very thankful and proud of the hard work of their Solid Waste Management employees who worked tirelessly to relieve them of the debris burden and immediate stress created by the ravages of Hurricane Harvey. City debris crews were on the ground immediately after the floodwaters receded and homeowners began their road to recovery.” Solid Waste Director Harry Hayes was also very thankful and proud of the work of the department’s employees and noted that “Houston’s solid waste team is extremely dedicated to serving its community especially in their time of extreme need. Many solid waste employees suffered Harvey damage, but were on the job from day one ensuring that the community quickly recovered.”

 March 2018: Regular Tree Waste Schedule
    April 2018: Regular Junk Waste Schedule

Remember odd months are Tree Waste and even months are Junk Waste.

Tree Waste months: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
Junk Waste months: February, April, June, August, October and December.
JUNK will NOT be collected again until APRIL. If you currently have junk on your curb, it needs to be disposed of in your regular garbage can or removed and either stored out of sight until April or taken to one of the City’s drop-off facilities. There is one at the Tollway @ SW Fwy feeder and is free (must take ID and utility bill to prove City of Houston residency, and be in non-commercial vehicle).
