THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (December 16, 2021) – There will be no interruption in solid waste services in The Woodlands during the Christmas and New Year holidays. All services will occur on their regularly scheduled service day including trash, recycling, yard trimmings and bulky trash pick-up. 

The Woodlands Recycling Center at 5402 Research Forest Drive will be open on Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. and closed on Saturday, December 25, 2021, and Saturday, January 1, 2022.  

Waste Management has discontinued courtesy collection of extra holiday boxes and wrapping paper the week after the holiday. Extra boxes left outside of the cart will not be picked up unless items are bagged and affixed with an extra trash pink tag. Please see the Extra Trash guidelines below. Please note, recycling that is bagged and pink-tagged will be considered trash and landfilled, not recycled. Residents can recycle extra boxes at The Woodlands Recycling Center or by requesting bulky cardboard pickup from Waste Management at 800-800-5804 or cssatex@wm.com.  

Extra Trash Guidelines

  • Extra bags of trash can be placed on the curb next to your cart.
  • Each bag must be affixed with a pink extra service tag.   
  • Purchase tags for $1.75 each from The Woodlands Township offices and Kroger locations (Cochran’s Crossing, Alden Bridge and Sterling Ridge).
  • Each bag may not weigh more than 40 pounds.  

Cut Christmas Tree Recycling – Unflocked Trees Only

  • Remove tree stand, all decorations and lights.  
  • Place the tree at the curb on your regular service day for collection by the yard trimmings truck.
  • Trees free of decorations may also be deposited at The Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park, 6464 Creekside Forest Drive and Research Forest Park and Ride, 3900 Marsico Place. These trees will be chipped and used as flooring at Texas TreeVentures.

Flocked Christmas Tree Disposal

  • Flocked Christmas trees must be landfilled.
  • Schedule bulky trash pickup by calling Waste Management Customer Service at 800-800-5804.
  • Call at least two business days before your regular service day.

For trouble-free service this holiday season, please keep streets clear of parked cars to allow trucks to safely access carts, place carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure cart lids close completely. 

To report a missed pick-up or schedule bulky trash or cardboard pickup, please contact Waste Management Customer Service at 800-800-5804 or cssatex@wm.com.
