THE WOODLANDS, TX -- As we continue our collective recovery from the impact of Hurricane Beryl, we want to share some reminders and updates to ensure everyone stays informed and safe. Your cooperation and patience are key as we work together to rebuild and restore our community.

Trash and Recycling Service
Waste Management will be collecting trash and recycling today. This week’s service is delayed by one day. Please be patient. There are streets that are still blocked and there is likely to be heavier collections than normal. If you experience a missed pickup, please leave your container curbside. Waste Management will be monitoring the missed pickups and will provide service as soon as they are able.

  • Monday's pickup will be on Tuesday.
  • Tuesday's pickup will be on Wednesday.
  • Wednesday's pickup will be on Thursday.
  • Thursday's pickup will be on Friday.
  • Friday's pickup will be on Saturday.

If your street is blocked, but you are able to place your trash container next to the container of a neighbor who is not blocked, you may do so. Make sure the bins are spread far enough apart, usually four feet, so that the truck can pick them up.

The Woodlands Recycling Center will be open tomorrow, July 10, 2024, from 4 to 7 p.m. and is located at 5402 Research Forest Drive, behind the Bear Branch Recreation Center. Household waste is not accepted. Items must comply with guidelines.
