Curbside Recycling
Texas City residents receive curbside recycling.

This program provides a convenient and effective way for our residents to recycle. The collection of recyclables is made curbside on the first garbage collection day of the week. For example, if regular garbage pick-up is made on Tuesdays and Fridays, recycling will be collected on Tuesdays at the curb.

No sorting is required; residents can place all accepted material in their container and set it out curbside on their first collection day of the week.

To keep the cost associated with curbside recycling to a minimum, we are relying on the resourcefulness of our Texas City residents to provide an appropriate container for recycling collection. Ideally residents could recycle or repurpose a container they already have such as trash cans, storage bins or tubs.

The City distributed a pamphlet outlining the program and included a sticker to help us identify your recycling container from regular trash cans. Please place the recycling sticker on your container so that it faces the street. If you did not receive a pamphlet and sticker they are available at the Biosphere 1 Recycling Center.

Simply place all recyclables together in an appropriate container and place it at least three feet from trash cans. Although some neighborhoods in Texas City have garbage pick-up in the alley, recycling is only collected curbside.
