Stricter Enforcement Of The Six Trash Bag Collection Limit

Six Trash Bag Limit Newsflash

In an effort to facilitate solid waste collection requirements, Bellaire has begun stricter enforcement of the existing six trash bag limit outlined in the City Code of Ordinances - Solid Waste Collection Requirements. You may see a pink tag on your trash that is left behind to notify you that those items exceeded the six-bag limit and were not collected that day.

 What if you have more than six trash bags?

  • You can purchase stickers for additional trash bags to be collected 
  • One sticker allowed per extra bag 
  • Stickers are available for $1 each at Utility Billing 
  • Utility Billing is in the Customer Service area at Bellaire City Hall, 7008 South Rice Avenue 
  • Each sticker must be prominently displayed on the trash bag(s) at the curb for pick up
  • All trash must be placed on the curb by 7:00 am
  • Lawn maintenance contractors are required by ordinance to haul away all yard waste generated by their services
