[ARCHIVED] Green Waste Recyling

Green/yard waste recycle collection starts February 29.

How will this change affect you?

Yard waste will be collected once a week on your regularly scheduled recycle day. For example: if your recycle day is Monday, then your yard waste will be collected on Monday as well.

This new program will require the use of kraft paper bags or compostable plastic bags. If you use a yard company and they do work in the City of Houston, chances are they are already using compostable bags.

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. (

Any material that is not properly bagged in paper bags or the compostable plastic bags will not be collected for recycling. 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.

For more information about the program, please visit or contact Public Works at 713-662-5839 or email
