As residents and the city of Houston prepare for next week’s Memorial Day holiday, the city’s Solid Waste Management department announced earlier this week that trash pickup will be slightly altered in the early part of next week.
The city said delays should be anticipated in the days following Memorial Day on Monday in all service areas as crews work to pick up all trash. Delays in curbside recycling collection should be anticipated, the city said, as collection crews will work throughout the weekend to ensure services are provided on designated collection week.
Below is the amended trash pickup schedule for next week:
