Trash, Recycle and E-Waste
Ashford Hollow has automated household garbage and recycling serviced by the City of Houston. The City has provided each house with rolling carts that need to be placed at the curb for collection.
Household trash is picked up Monday of each week. When there is a government holiday on Monday, our trash pick up is moved to Tuesday to accommodate the holiday.
Recycling is collected on a bi-weekly schedule. Get reminder emails from the website when you're a member, or click the recycling tab above to download a current calendar.
Heavy trash day is the 4th Wednesday of each month and alternates between "tree waste" and "junk waste." Get reminder emails when you're a member.
The city-provided trash and recycle bins should be placed at the curb between 6 pm Sunday and 7 am Monday on the scheduled collection day.

The Houston area now has expanded e-waste recycling options. There are currently over thirty (30) free drop off sites at various storage facilities throughout the city that participate in the GREENspot DROPoff Program. For GREENspot locations, just do an online search for Dropoff Houston, or visithttp://dropoff.houstontx.gov.
Electronics often have hazardous components, and with the mounting volume of disposable e-waste, it is important to keep those materials out of the waste stream and out of the environment.
Here are some examples of everyday items that can be recycled with GREENspot: televisions, fax machines, computer monitors, DVD Players, laptops, VCR / Beta, keyboards, cables & cords, printers, radios, computer mice, stereo components, hard drives, tape & zip drives.
