Council Member Green is pleased to announce that the City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department has added 70,000 additional households citywide to its single-stream automated curbside recycling program. As part of this curbside expansion, residents within these selected neighborhoods will receive one 96-gallon green automated cart. This will be similar to the black automated garbage cart.
“Since coming into office last year, I have strongly advocated for single-stream recycling for all neighborhoods within District K,” states Council Member Green. “I will continue to advocate for expanded recycling services for all neighborhoods within District K.”
Only 5,573 households out of the 70,000 citywide will receive single-stream recycling within District K this round. Subdivisions included in the October 2013 expansion curbside Automated Recycling Program are:
- Anderson Oaks
- Brentwood Place
- Brentwood Village
- Briargate (west of Blue Ridge Rd.)
- Chasewood Meadows
- Mayfair Park
- Quail Run
- Quail Glen
- Southwest Crossing
- Southwest Manor
- Willow Park II
Even though Mayor Parker plans to push for an additional expansion in Spring 2014, the District K office is still advocating for those neighborhoods that have expressed a strong consideration within the next round.
