Holiday Waste Collection, Tree Recycling

Sugar Land, TX - Residents will have several opportunities to dispose of solid waste immediately after Christmas and New Year’s Day – holidays that typically result in oversized garbage.

Solid waste collection will occur on regularly scheduled days following the Christmas and New Year’s Day weekends.

Bulky waste service is normally provided once per month for items too large to fit in garbage carts. Bulky waste does not include construction, demolition or hazardous wastes. Bulky waste will be collected after Christmas from Dec. 26-29 and again after New Year’s Day from Jan. 2-5. The date of the extra bulk waste collection day will depend on each neighborhood’s regular bulk waste day as outlined below.

Regular Bulky Waste Service Day Christmas Bulky Waste Service Day New Year's Bulky Waste Service Day
1st Monday Tuesday, Dec. 27 Tuesday, Jan. 3
2nd Monday Wednesday, Dec. 28 Wednesday, Jan. 4
3rd Monday Thursday, Dec. 29 Thursday, Jan. 5
4th Monday Monday, Dec. 26 Monday, Jan. 2

Guidelines for bulky waste collection follow:
  • Set bulky items out by 7 a.m. on the collection day but no earlier than 6 p.m. the prior evening.
  • Bulky items should be placed at the curb at least 4 feet from other objects.
  • Do not place bulky waste items in garbage carts. They should be placed directly on the curb.
  • Live Christmas trees can be placed curbside on assigned green waste days. All green waste, including Christmas trees, is recycled and made into mulch. Trees should be free of ornaments, metal stands and flocking. Christmas trees should not be disposed of in City parks.
