Waste Management Residential Guidelines – Separating Garbage from Storm Debris at the Curb

Version in Espanol

As individuals and families return to the areas affected by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey to begin the cleanup process, it is important that storm debris remain separate from residential garbage and recycling. FEMA, operating in conjunction with the county, municipalities and contractors will collect storm debris, and Waste Management will collect household garbage and recycling. Separating household waste from storm debris will allow Waste Management employees to collect your household garbage more quickly and safely, helping to prevent spoilage and avoid safety hazards. Below are guidelines to help you separate your household waste from storm debris.

STANDARD TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTION INFORMATION

Waste Management has resumed collection in most areas and will continue to collect regular household garbage and recycling that is not contaminated with storm debris. Do not include storm debris, including yard waste, with your regular trash. For the most up to date Service Alerts, visit www.wm.com/alerts.
