Harris County warns against unauthorized dumpsites after Hurricane Ike
- Written by Harris County Homeland Security & Emergency Management
Harris County strongly urges residents to avoid creating debris stockpile sites in their neighborhoods (i.e. parking lots, medians, community centers, etc). Neighborhoods wanting to establish their own collection sites must coordinate with Harris County before creating their own drop-off sites. Unincorporated Harris County residents are encouraged to wait for County debris haulers to remove debris from the right-of-way in front of their homes or to use one of the six (6) designated drop-off locations provided by Harris County. Harris County debris contractors are only collecting debris from sites located in the County right-of-way. Residents of Unincorporated Harris County who wish to remove vegetative debris quickly from their private property should use one of the six (6) debris drop-off locations provided by the County.
