Solid Waste Management Debris Collection Notice: Traffic

HOUSTON - The City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department is asking residents to remove all parked vehicles from the streets when debris crews are working in your neighborhood.

Debris needs to be placed close to the side of the road away from mailboxes, trees, meters, fire hydrants and other structures. Do not place debris in the roadway.
