Harvey Storm Debris Pickup

Storm Debris Pick-up Update  

As the City of Houston continues FEMA contracted debris pick-up in Meyerland, here are a few updates and pointers:

Pick-up is being done in two phases and the second phase will not begin until everyone has had the first pick-up.   Because each home is generating up to 1-1/2 tractor trailers of debris, the process will take time.

You can make the process faster and easier!

  • Make sure debris are placed no deeper than 10 feet from the curb, away from trees, light posts, fire hydrants, and other obstacles otherwise FEMA trucks cannot service it.
  • Keep the street clear of vehicles which will block access ot make sure someone is available to move a vehicle quickly
  • Contact 311 and request a pick-up for your address. (Multiple request calls are not needed, as an address is recorded once for pick-up.) To avoid phone wait times, use the website (www.houstontx.gov/311) to Report Harvey Debris

For the second phase, the City asks that debris be separated into

1) construction & demolition debris
2) appliances
3) electronics
4) household hazardous waste (paint, oil, pesticides, etc.)
5) normal household
6) vegetative debris. 

See www.houstonsolidwaste.org for more information and updates.  If you need help to sort debris, relocate debris curbside, or other free assistance, please call the City at 211 and request volunteer help.

please see the pictured sorting guide below for the second phase pickup.
