In an effort to improve collection services of garbage, recycling, and green waste, the City’s waste collection provider, Waste Management, Inc. has modified existing residential routes in the City and your collection days will be affected beginning Feb. 2, 2015.

Background
The City’s waste collection provider, Waste Management performed the last comprehensive citywide reroute more than 10 years ago in August 2004. Since that time, the City of Pearland has grown exponentially. The population growth necessitates a new waste service reroute plan to improve the efficiency of waste collection. The change maintains the current service level of 2 times per week and alleviates the need to collect garbage, recycling and green waste on additional days throughout the week.

The following improvements will occur as a result of the route change:

  • The reroute will make the routes more efficient.
  • Staff and equipment will be exclusively assigned to the City of Pearland.
  • The reroute will eliminate the need for fill-in drivers and trucks, which can lead to missed pick ups.
  • Fewer trucks in the City provide an environmental benefit along with a benefit in less wear and tear on infrastructure.
  • Collection services will improve with greater efficiency and consistency to avoid missed services.
  • Dense Shadow Creek residential area is separated from other routes, which allows for improved service.
