Waste Management resumed its regular pickup Sept. 11 of regular green waste, recycling and heavy trash other than storm debris.
Branches should be cut, tied and bundled as usual.
Bulk items such as mattresses and sofas are also picked up but the items cannot be picked up if they are wet or were wet from the storm. The items must be uncontaminated by Hurricane Harvey for regular trash pickup.
Contaminated items should be left on the curb for pick up by the City’s storm debris collection contractor. The City’s storm debris contractor has begun work in Pearland’s most heavily impacted areas.
FEMA has begun its Disaster Assistance and advance registration is preferred at 1-800-621-3362 or www.disasterassistance.gov.
Residents need to report damage if they have not done so to www.pearland.gov/damagereport.
This completed form helps the City estimate and assess damage and necessary debris pickup. The report is informational only.
The City of Pearland wants their residents to know that there is not a boil water order for the city and the water in the City is safe to drink.
Residents will have until Wednesday, Oct. 5 to put out storm debris for collection. See the City’s website at www.pearlandtx.gov for instructions on the proper way to place debris for pickup.
