New Solid Waste and Recycling Program in Greatwood

The new solid waste and recycling program will begin on December 14, 2020. Households in Greatwood 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, textile recycling collection once per week and on-call bulk cardboard collection services.

Every household will receive a 95-gallon garbage cart and a 65-gallon recycle cart, unless a different size was requested during the cart selection process earlier this year. Additional program details and a collection schedule magnet will be mailed to all Greatwood residents in early November. The carts and a program guide will be delivered to your neighborhood starting December 7. Please do not utilize the carts until the new service begins on December 14.

Your current recycle cart will be collected by Best Trash. Please place your Best Trash recycle cart out on your final recycle service day, and leave it at the curb until crews are able to collect it.

If you have questions about the new solid waste and recycling services, please contact 3-1-1 or 281-275-2900 or email
