Hurricane Harvey Storm Debris

Due to the amount of debris at curbs throughout the city, Sugar Land is working to activate its debris management contract.  This will allow resources to be dedicated to the collection of storm debris and ensure compliance with FEMA requirements.  Debris collection will begin on Thursday, September 7 and is expected to take three to four weeks to complete.  

All items must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. and comply with the following guidelines identified in the Disposal Directory.

Sept. 21 Update
The debris contractor will begin the second and final round of storm debris collections on Monday, Sept. 25.  The delay in collection is to allow residents enough time to place any remaining storm debris at the curb over the weekend.  

Sept. 16 Update
The first pass of storm debris collection was completed on Sept. 15.  If your storm debris was not collected, please contact the Solid Waste Division.  The debris contractor will begin the second and final round of storm debris collections on Sept. 20.  

Storm debris is any item (carpet, furniture, dry wall, etc.) that was damaged during Hurricane Harvey.  All items must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. and comply with the following guidelines identified in the Disposal Directory.  Please do not place items near a fire hydrant, mailbox or any other object that can be damaged.  

The debris contractor is not able to collect hazardous materials such as paint and chemicals.  Residents need to utilize the City's Household Hazardous Waste collection to properly dispose of items.  

Sept. 13 Update
Debris collection is ongoing in Settlers Park and Chimeystone.  The contractor will continue to work 7 days a week from 7 am - 7 pm until all debris is collected.  It is still expected to take three to four weeks to complete.
