Keep La Marque Beautiful Commission planned a free bulk trash drop-off, shredding, tire recycling for citizens for Saturday, April 25, 2020, but the event has been postponed due to COVID-19. The City of La Marque will post event updates as they become available. In the meantime, we’d like to remind citizens about services available through City of La Marque’s trash service provider, Waste Management. 

Trash collection is offered twice-a-week, once-a-week pick up for bulk, and every-other-week for recycling. Trash collection maps are available here, or you can search by your address. Despite Waste Management’s best efforts, they occasionally miss scheduled collections. If they do, please call 800-800-5804 as soon as you can. The drivers will try to return on the same day to pick up your waste or recycling. If the driver has already left your area, they’ll pick up what was missed the following day.

BULK COLLECTION 

Bulk collection will be at the curb, once-a-week, with a limit of 5 cu. yd. An additional collection of bulk waste exceeding 5 cu. yd. can be scheduled 24-hours prior to your bulk collection day for a fee. To schedule a collection of additional bulk waste, please call Waste Management 800-800-5804.

Bulk Waste

  • Carpeting (cut into 4-foot bundles)
  • Household furniture
  • Appliances with CFCs removed

AT YOUR DOOR Special Collection Service

Waste Management’s At Your Door Special CollectionSM provides residents with front-porch service to collect the difficult, sometimes hazardous, and hard-to-recycle items that almost every household accumulates. Waste Management will collect the pesticides, household chemicals, sharps, electronic waste, batteries, fluorescent lamps, automotive waste products (including oil), paints, thinners, and dozens of other items that don’t belong with your recyclables or regular curbside waste pickup. To schedule a pickup or for information, please contact Waste Management at 800-449-7587, e-mail At Your Door, or visit the At Your Door website.

Waste Management Recycling Program

Waste Management helped pioneer a process that lets you put all your clean recyclables into a single receptacle—no need to sort your recyclables! Just roll your recycling bin to the curb, and Waste Management takes it from there. By recycling everyday items like those shown below, tons of raw materials, time, energy, and money are saved. Recycled materials become new products. If you recycle an aluminum can today, it could be back at the store as a new one in 60 days.

Recyclables go in the green cart with the yellow lid. Only place acceptable recyclables shown below in your recycling cart - no sorting needed. Containers should be rinsed and free of food and liquid. Please do not put recyclables in plastic bags.
