Starting Monday February 29, the City of West University Place will once again be collecting green waste (yard waste) recycling curbside.
HOW IT WORKS:
Yard waste will be collected once a week on your regularly scheduled recycle day. This may require some residents to reschedule their yard service days to coincide with the new collection day. For example: if your curbside recycling day is Monday, then your yard waste recycling will be collected on Monday as well.
It is also important to note that this program will require the use of Kraft paper bags or compostable plastic bags. If you use a yard service company, and they work in the City of Houston, chances are they are already using the compostable plastic bags required by Houston however you may want to verify.
Paper and compostable bags may be purchased at several local retailers or online. The City of Houston provides a good webpage on where the bags can be purchased. (http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/compostableretail.html)
Any material that is not properly bagged in paper bags or the compostable plastic bags will not be collected.
MAKE A NOTE...green waste will be collected on your regularly scheduled recycle collection day. If you use a lawn maintenance service, now is a good time to let them know of the collection day.
