Let Us Recycle Those Christmas Trees!

Fort Bend MUD No. 185 will pick up – and recycle – all clean Christmas trees placed curbside. The date for recycling is Thursday, December 28th.

Please remove your tree base before placing your tree curbside. Trees with flocking, lights, ornaments or other decorations can not be recycled, so place only clean trees at the curb by 7:00am. Please do your part this Holiday season to cut down on the unnecessary use of landfill space. We also encourage you – throughout the year – to fill up those curbside recycling bins. For items not accepted in bins, call or visit the Fort Bend County Recycle/Environmental Center at 1200 Blume Road, on the western edge of the Rosenberg city limits.

Hours of operation at the Fort Bend County Recycle / Environmental Center are:

  • Recycling: Monday through Saturday 8:00am – 4:00pm (except holidays), Closed on Wednesdays
  • Household Hazardous Waste: Mondays 9:00am – 6:00pm, 1st Saturday of each month 8:00am – 2:00pm

The automated Recycling / Household Hazardous Waste information telephone line is: (281) 633-7527.
