Watch a video at www.sugarlandtx.gov/solidwaste explaining Sugar Land’s new solid waste and recycling program.
Enhanced services and city savings of $800,000 annually are covered in the video, which is also airing on SLtv 16 for Comcast subscribers in Sugar Land.
Households in Sugar Land will receive automated garbage collection twice per week, automated recycling collection once per week, green waste collection once per week, bulky waste collection once per month and an on-call collection service. New service will begin on December 5.
Current curbside recycling will be expanded to include all colors of glass bottles and jars. The addition of a green waste program ensures all green waste — grass clippings, leaves, brush, tree limbs, etc. — will be taken to a composting facility and recycled into mulch or compost rather than sent to a landfill.
Also new for every household will be a 95-gallon garbage cart and a 65-gallon recycling cart, unless a different size was requested.
