Beginning October 2, 2017, citizens and businesses of La Marque will have new solid waste, recycling and bulk collection by Waste Management. Every home will receive a new 96-gallon green cart with a green lid for items considered trash and a new 96-gallon green cart with yellow lid for items considered recycling. Waste collection will be twice-a-week and recycling collection will be once every-other-week. Bulk collection will be once-a-week with a limit of five-cubic yards at the curb at no additional cost to the residents. Anything exceeding five-cubic yards can be scheduled for pickup at an additional charge.
In late September, citizens will be asked to set out the old blue trash and recycling carts. The old carts will be picked up as the new carts are delivered. Please review the New Service Brochure attached to your new trash cart at the time of delivery. Official trash pickup from Waste Management begins on October 2, 2017. As the transition progresses, information will be provided with your water bill, on the city website and on social media.
