Property Owners Association
Many of us have old items such as batteries, paints, and electronics that we know we shouldn’t put in the trash but don’t know where to dispose of them . Besides some of the obvious chemicals, there are also many items that we tend to throw in the trash that are not good for our environment. The city of Houston is working to make the management of household hazardous waste easier by providing an ongoing collection. Now, we need to do our part by taking the time to dispose of these items properly. Please read and keep the information below on how you can help our city and our environment. Thanks Britt Hutchison
