(Updated November 20, 2017)
The City’s contractors are currently in the process of completing the last and final pass of the City to pick up any remaining debris from the storm – including tree limbs, household and construction debris. Residents are strongly urged to place storm-related limbs/tree debris ONLY by the curb NOW, to avoid being missed. City staff are going back through the areas to ensure all debris has been picked up. Once City staff signs off on the area, CONTRACTORS WILL NOT GO BACK to pick up any additional debris that is placed by the curb after they have already made the second and final pass.
* If residents hire private contractors to trim trees, the contractors are responsible for hauling the limbs away.
Contractors are also going through areas to trim limbs that are hanging or leaning in the right of way. The contractor will place the leaners and hangers in one central pile per block by the curb. The contractor has a list of homes where the leaners and hangers were cut and will pick up that debris during the second pass for tree debris.
Brush Pick-Up Suspended Until Monday, Dec. 4
PLEASE NOTE: BRUSH PICK UP IS SUSPENDED UNTIL MONDAY, DECEMBER 4. Due to Hurricane Harvey, the City's Brush Trucks are currently assisting contractors with storm debris collection.
Damaged Appliances & Metal Items
If you have appliances, patio furniture and other metal items that were damaged during Hurricane Harvey, please call the Solid Waste Department at 485-3220 to have your name placed on a pick-up list.
City crews have noticed that piles of junk that are not storm-related debris are being placed at the curb. Only storm-related debris will be collected by the City contractors. City crews are helping contractors collect storm debris so the City will not begin regular pickup of junk until December 1. Residents with piles of junk that were not the result of Hurricane Harvey, can contact the Solid Waste Department at 485-3220 starting December 1, 2017, to schedule a pick-up of these items.
