Yard Trimmings / Green Waste

Curbside pickup of yard trimmings/green waste

Since August 1, 2000 the City of Pearland has had a separate pickup of yard trimmings. The trimmings are picked up by a separate truck on a certain day of the week and taken to a commercial facility for composting. But before you bag up all your lawn clippings please consider grass cycling by using the mulch feature on your mower.

Your Yard Trimmings / Green Waste Day Depends on where you live.  Check this map for the new Green Waste Routes:

To participate, residents should place grass, leaves, flowers, stalks, stems and trimmings in a translucent (semi clear) bag at curbside on their collection day ( The weight of the bag should not exceed 35 pounds. Tree limbs and branches should be cut no longer than five feet in length and tied in bundles no larger than 18 inches in diameter and no heavier than 50 pounds.  Local vendors carrying clear plastic bags include HEB (clear, compostable lawn and garden bags), Lowes, Home Depot (lawn and garden department), Pearland Lumber & Ace Hardware and O’Day Hardware.

In December and  January of each year, Christmas trees are also collected for this program. All decorations, tinsel and the stand should be removed from the tree to prepare it for recycling.  Trees should not have flocking.

Use the City Property Search function to find out when your pick up days are for trash and recycling… click here and put your address in the fields in the top right corner.
