Hey Sugar Landers! We’re here to tell you that unlike your gifts that may or may not be stuck on a tanker in the middle of an ocean – there are no delays in solid waste service during Christmas! On the other hand, you will have an extra bulky waste day to help with your post-holiday purging. Your extra bulk waste day will be based on when you receive your usual bulk waste collection. Not sure about your collection day? Visit http://www.sugarlandtx.gov/MyNeighborhood
We also know you may be wondering what to do with your Christmas tree (real or artificial), and things like cooking oil! Residents can place live Christmas trees out for collection on regular weekly green waste collection days. Ornaments, tinsel and lights must be removed for collection. REMINDER: Christmas trees should not be disposed of in city parks. Artificial Christmas trees can be disposed of on a bulky waste collection day, but just make sure that trees are disassembled before placing them at the curb for collection.
As far as cooking oil goes, used cooking oil and cooking grease can be disposed of at the Public Works Service Center located at 101A Gillingham Lane. Residents can dispose of up to 10 gallons of liquid cooking oil per day at no charge. The facility is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. with the exception of December 24, 2021 and December 31, 2021, during which time the facility will be closed. Just be sure to check in at the front office before disposing of your oil!
All this said, don’t forget to keep up with the Sugar Land Holiday Solid Waste Schedule at http://www.sugarlandtx.gov/HolidaySchedule – it’s a great way to stay informed on holiday-related service impacts all-year-round!
