Recycling Services Ending

Waste Connections Logo (2)

Out of 1500 users, only 22% or 337 correctly recycle.  To increase collection fees by $8 for a service not being used by the majority of the community plus no assurance that what is collected is actually being recycled, was behind the decision to keep rates the same and opt out of curbside recycling at this time.  Residents will continue to use the blue cart as they currently do.  Those wishing to obtain a second blue cart may do so at a charge of $4 per month per cart by contacting City Hall at 979-345-3123. When recycling options become available and at a more affordable rate, the city will reconsider services.


Waste Connections will remove the green carts the final recycling pickup the last week of November. Information will be posted on the city's website, www.westcolumbiatx.org, on this Facebook page, in the newspapers, on the utility bill and at City Hall.  Those residents interested in recycling may take their items to Seabreeze Environmental Landfill, 10310 FM 523, Angleton, Texas.
