Household Hazardous Waste

During Fiscal Year 2020, City staff conducted a review of the on-call Household Hazardous Waste program and determined that less than five percent of residents utilize the collection services. Rather than continue a program subsidized by all residents and only used by a few, the City determined that the most economically responsible option was to eliminate the program at the conclusion of 2020.

Effective January 1, 2021 the City’s Household Hazardous Waste program will no longer be provided as a service.

Moving forward, residents are encouraged to utilize the Fort Bend County Recycling Center, which is a regional drop-off center for household hazardous waste and electronics recycling for Fort Bend County residents. Their website provides information regarding accepted materials and applicable fees.

Please remember to not place these materials in your garbage or recycling carts, as they should be disposed of properly. It is also important to note that household hazardous waste material placed at the curb with bulky waste will not be collected.
