The City of Galveston offers monthly home collection of recyclables to elderly and disabled residents. To register for this service please, call 409-797-3630 or email public works. Please fill out the application for in-yard service for the Elderly or Handicap residents here. Upon receipt and approval of the application – the resident will be delivered a 14-gallon blue bin at no charge to the resident.  The bin, while not large, will assist in identifying the recyclables from regular trash.
