Biodegradable bags for yard waste

Occasional tree watering is being continued through the winter as needed. No new trees are being planted.

I’m sorry, but I was unable to work out the details for the home tree sale with Trees for Houston. They do run sales at area locations with some very good deals on hard to obtain native trees. I will let you know if I hear of these sales.

I have noticed neighbors putting yard clippings, pruning waste, etc. out for the trash pick-up using black plastic or other such bags. The city will not take these. Waste must be in the city approved biodegradable bags only, normally available at grocery and home supply stores. As of this date they seem to be in scarce supply, but I guess more will be available soon. Also, if you hire a contractor to work in your yard, there is an ordinance that they are supposed to take the waste with them. If you do allow the waste to be left with you, please be sure it is not left at the curb until trash day . Help keep Lazybrook beautiful!

Thanks to Shane for putting up holiday decorations on our entrance signs.

    Yes same as Trash pickup day however be aware:

    Yard Trimmings, grass clippings,small branches and leaves must not be placed in the automated garbage cans. They must be in city-approved compostable bags not weighing more than 50 pounds, and placed at the curb 3 feet away from the automated container for separate yard trimmings collection. Small branches may be put in bundles as long as each bundle is less than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter and weighing less than 50 pounds. Yard Trimmings mixed with paper, plastic, or any other type of waste will not be collected.
