Solid Waste & Recycling

Hurricane Harvey Storm Debris

Debris collections from Hurricane Harvey were completed on Oct. 5. The first pass of debris collections were completed on Sept. 15, and a second was finished on Sept. 30. Spot collections were handled by the city’s regular solid waste contractor through Oct. 5. Approximately 1,900 cubic yards of storm debris were collected from approximately 250 flooded homes.

Reconstruction Debris

The City of Sugar Land will not collect reconstruction debris and it cannot be placed at the curb for regular collection because it is construction and demolition debris. Residents can utilize one of the following options for reconstruction debris. Fees will apply.

  • Have your contractor remove the material
  • Obtain a roll-off box from a licensed solid waste hauler
  • Request an additional bulky waste service from Republic Services by calling 713-726-7307 or email sugarland@republicservices.com
  • Haul the material to a local landfill
