On behalf of Council Member Edward Pollard:
We are excited to announce the next installment of District J Private Trash Day, which will take place Saturday, June 17, 2023. This door-to-door concierge service is being provided to District J in response to residents who are in need of heavy trash and tree waste removal. Private Trash Day is a supplement to the work done by the city’s Solid Waste Department and does not replace your regular city schedule. We are the only area of the city doing this initiative, and it is only for District J residents.
To participate in the program, registration is required. If you do not register your home for heavy pick up, your waste will not be discarded, and you will be responsible for removing those items from the curb.
Waste removal workers will collect up to 8 cubic yards of waste for each registered home (about the size of two pickup truck beds or a 5-passenger mini-van). All tree shrubs must be bundled or bagged in order to be collected, and waste must be put out on the curb by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 17th.
This private curb-side service will be on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for heavy trash/tree waste collection at your home, click here to complete the request form. If you do not have access to the internet, please register by calling or texting 832-427-9235 (you may text your physical address, email and phone number). The deadline to register for pickup is June 9, 2023. We encourage you to please share this information with all your neighbors to enhance awareness.
Please note, below is a list of unacceptable items to discard. Any items on this list will not be picked up:
- Whole Tires
- Household Garbage (food, drinks, liquids/chemicals)
- Hazardous Waste
- Paint Cans with Liquid and/or lids attached
- Refrigerators with Freon
- A/C Unites with Freon
