Starting Feb. 1, the Missouri City Recycling Center,1919 Scanlin Rd., will start two new processes: The facility will begin accepting clear and colored glass; and all paper and flattened cardboard recyclables will have a separate marked container from all other materials.
Plastics, metals and glass can be mixed into the same marked container. The center will also continue to accept plastics (#1-5 and #7), aluminum, tin, steel cans and trays.
Recyclables can be dropped-off at the center for free every day of the week, 24 hours a day. The facility does not accept electronics, hazardous materials, tires and furniture.
Through a City partnership with the Fort Bend County Household Hazardous Waste Center, Missouri City residents can receive a voucher credit to drop off up to $50 worth of household hazardous materials such as paints, oil, antifreeze, batteries, gasoline, fertilizers, pesticides and more at the County facility.
Contact City Forester Paul Wierzbicki, 281-403-8645 or firstname.lastname@example.org for your voucher.
The Fort Bend County Recycling Center is located at 1200 Blume Rd. in Rosenberg, 281-633-7581, and also accepts electronics and tires for a fee.
