November 1, 2012 – Beginning Sunday, November 4, 2012, the City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department will be changing hours of operation at its six neighborhood depositories (heavy trash & recycling drop-off sites). For the safety of our customers and staff now that daylight savings is ending, the locations listed below will be open Wednesday through Sunday, except holidays, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Citizens are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing to allow adequate time to unload.
Houston residents may utilize these Solid Waste Management Department neighborhood depository and recycling centers to dispose of their heavy trash:

Each user must provide proof of residency in the form of a Texas Driver's License or ID, a current utility bill or city property tax receipt. The neighborhood depositories accept furniture, tree limbs, stoves and other large appliances. Appliances containing refrigerant must have a tag attached to them certifying that a qualified technician has removed the refrigerant. Depositories will also accept up to 10 automobile tires per household per month. A maximum of four cubic yards of building material will be accepted. Not accepted: roofing shingles, brick, plaster or concrete.
Neighborhood depositories are also recycling drop-off facilities for paper, plastic, glass, corrugated cardboard, aluminum and tin cans, and plastics #1-#5 and #7.
