City of Houston Solid Waste Collection Delays


We have reached out to the City of Houston Solid Waste Management Supervisor due to the missed garbage, recycling and heavy trash collections that have occurred over the last few weeks. We were told that the Solid Waste Department is struggling to get the heavy/junk trash collected in the City. Currently there are 38 job openings and the crews are working during the week (late into the evening) and on weekends to get the trash collected and processed. There is no time estimate for collection in Meyerland and Solid Waste is aware of the massive amounts of trash and waste sitting out on curbs.

To see the collection calendar, visit the City of Houston Government website HERE.

The City is requesting patience and understanding while they try and get the city collected.
