Heavy Trash Pickup starts Monday

Our biannual heavy trash pickup starts on Monday, November 13th and will continue all week.

It is highly recommended that you have your items for pickup out by Monday morning. Once the truck passes down your street it will not circle back.

Remember to separate your items into two piles. One is for vegetation and the other is for trash.

As usual, the truck will not pick up construction debris, tires, vehicles, etc. Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, etc must have the freon removed and tagged by a professional.

If you have any questions, contact Bernie at City Hall at 281-471-2244.

Warning Signs and Symptoms of Heat-Related Illness
