Debris Removal Hotline Still Active

Precinct 4 continues to make progress on debris removal for the nearly 11,000 homes that flooded across the precinct.

With the first of three passes complete, debris removal crews are now beginning their second pass in Precinct 4’s flood-affected areas. Although crews required three weeks to clean up after the Tax Day Floods last year, Precinct 4 and its partners are now removing the same amount of debris in two days. To date, crews have removed nearly 500,000 cubic yards of debris from Precinct 4 neighborhoods.

As a reminder, citizens are encouraged to have all their debris sorted and placed in a county-right-of-way by Nov. 5. The debris drop-off site, located at 13928 Humble Road in Tomball, will close approximately one month later.

Debris removal services and the drop-off site are authorized for flood debris only. No construction materials from remodeling projects will be picked up or allowed. Please plan to have your construction materials picked up during your community’s normal heavy trash days, or the contractor must arrange to have all construction materials removed.

To ensure that your debris will be picked up, please separate your debris into the following categories:

• Vegetative debris (branches, limbs, and shrubbery)
• Storm demolition debris (shingles, sidings, treated wood)
• Household Hazardous Waste HHW (paint, oil, batteries, etc.)
• White Goods/Appliances (refrigerator, stove, etc.)
• Electronics (computer, TV, anything with a cord)

Household hazardous waste, white goods, and large electronics will be collected separately. If you have household hazardous waste or if you have not received any debris removal service, please call the Harris County Residential Debris & Damage Assessment Hotline at 713-274-3880 or email
