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.
As of July 2017, the City has separated the home collection into four zones. Zone 1 will be picked up on the 4th Wednesday of the month, Zone 2 on the 3rd Wednesday, Zone 3 on the 2nd Wednesday, and Zone 4 on the 1st Wednesday. Please place bins curbside by 8am on your collection day.
