Solid Waste Management Department Announces Kingwood Post Flood Collection First Pass

The City of Houston's Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) is initiating the first pass of debris collection for single-family homes in the City’s Kingwood service area affected by recent flood damage on Monday, May 13, 2024. As part of our commitment to the community's recovery efforts, our crews have been assessing the damage and planning operations to swiftly address the aftermath of the flood. Please have your debris placed out on the curb by Monday 6:00 a.m.

Approximately 300-400 cubic yards of residential storm debris has been identified for the initial first-pass collection. On Monday morning, May 13, the SWMD will begin deploying resources in its Kingwood service area to begin the removal process. Over the next two weeks, the City of Houston will conduct additional debris removal assessments to ensure that all associated heavy trash is removed accordingly.

Residents are reminded to separate debris into the six distinct categories illustrated on the storm debris regulations document: Garbage, Vegetative, Construction and Demolition, Appliances, Electronics, and Household Hazardous Waste.

To aid in the coordination of collection efforts, residents of the affected Kingwood area are encouraged to report all debris removal needs to the 3-1-1 Call Center, visit our website at, and download the HTX Collects mobile application.

The Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) provides the city with integrated municipal waste management services designed to support environmental health, sustainability, and economic development in all communities throughout Houston.
