Sugar Land, TX News (June 10, 2014) - Service days for bulky waste pickup will change for all residents on August 4, 2014.
Bulky waste service is provided once a month for items too large to fit in the garbage cart. Bulky waste does not include construction, demolition, or hazardous wastes.
Some residents will also have a new day for recycling, but collection days for garbage and green waste will not change.
The changes are detailed at sugarlandtx.gov/solidwaste, and residents will receive information by mail that includes a magnet detailing the new service schedules.
Automated recycling service is provided once a week utilizing a City-issued green cart with a wide range of materials being accepted, including:
- all colors of glass bottles and jars;
- newspapers, magazines, catalogs, phonebooks, office paper, school paper, mail, paperback books;
- cardboard, paperboard, and paper bags;
- steel and tin cans (labels are ok);
- aluminum cans, foil, and food trays; and
- plastics #1-5, 7.
Green waste collection is also provided weekly. The green waste program ensures all green waste — grass clippings, leaves, brush, tree limbs, etc. — will be recycled rather than sent to a landfill. Green waste materials should be placed in a reusable container or tied bags; compostable bags are not required.
