City Asks Residents to Remove Cars from Streets for Storm Debris Collections

The City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department is asking residents to remove all parked vehicles from the streets in the areas hit by Monday's storm to facilitate easy access of the heavy equipment during debris collection.  Debris should be placed not in the road, but rather close to the side of the road away from mailboxes, trees, meters, fire hydrants and other structures.  In addition, agencies assisting with the recovery effort are asked to identify off-street parking for their volunteers.

If heavy trucks are unable to pass safely along the streets, the City will not be able to remove the debris.

For more information about the City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department and its services, residents may check online at www.houstonsolidwaste.org, like us on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/houstonsolidwaste, follow us on twitter @houstontrash or call 3-1-1, the City of Houston's Customer Service Hotline.

The Solid Waste Management Department provides solid waste service to the citizens of Houston through the collection, disposal and recycling of discarded material in a manner that is safe, efficient, environmentally sound and cost-effective.

 

Flood Resources for Recovery

Dear Neighbors,

We were saddened to see that some of you flooded in the April 18, 2016 floods.  We were even sadder when we realized some of you are experiencing a repeat of Memorial Day 2015.  We have the following resources available for neighbors, to help you on the way to recovery:

  1. "Mucking Out" - If you need assistance getting water out, cutting out sheetrock, etc.  and have not yet reached out for help, please call the following number to be added to the clean up database that organizations use to coordinate assistance.  Most organizations will begin Monday or Tuesday.  This assistance is FREE: 1-800-451-1954

    Someone will collect your information and enter you into the clean up database that the volunteer organizations assisting in disaster use to help.

    Please feel free to call in. If the lines are busy, keep trying.

  2. Financial Relief and Case Management - Disaster relief is a long, arduous process.  Jewish Family Services will have a caseworker, Morgan Zeringue, available at United Orthodox Synagogues from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, April 21, 2016 and 10 a.m. - 12 noon Friday, April 22, 2016.  Morgan will be able to put you in touch with other resources beyond "mucking out".

    Jewish Family Services will be at their location at other times.  You do not need to be Jewish to sign up for services.

Recycling to Continue but Glass no Longer Accepted

The City of Houston and Waste Management have reached tentative agreement on a new 2-year contract that will allow the city to continue offering recycling services without any disruption. The only change in service that Houstonians will notice is the elimination of glass from the list of items that are acceptable for placement in the green curbside single-stream recycling bins.  Glass, currently has no value on the commodities market, breaks down during collection and transportation and is unduly destructive to the processing equipment.

Residents will still have the option of dropping off glass for recycling at the City's neighborhood depositories.
