Recycling Continues Glass Not Accepted
Recycling pick up days are, Thursdays (every other week)
The City of Houston has an agreement with Waste Management that will allow the city to continue offering recycling services. The major change in service is the elimination of glass from the list of items acceptable for placement in the green curbside single-stream recycling bins. Residents will still have the option of dropping off glass for recycling at the City's neighborhood depositories. The closest to our area is 9003 N. Main Street 77022. (Center Street location has been closed). There are neighborhood entrepreneurs providing glass pick-up services for a fee.
Over 2,400 frequently answered questions have been collected and warehoused. With such a broad array of reference entries developed jointly with departmental experts, and by providing specific information from other shared databases, the 311 Helpline resolves 85% of calls without transfer, Service Request, or follow-up.
The 311 Agents also process requests for specific city services like pothole repair or a traffic signal malfunction by creating a Service Request in 311's Service Management system. Each Service Request can be tracked from start to finish. More than 300 specific Service Request types have been defined and scripted within the system. Each Service Request is forwarded to the appropriate department and a deadline date is assigned for investigation and resolution
The system generates numerous reports by department, by division within a department, by Service request type, participants, council districts, zip codes, Key Map locations, and other geographic areas. Regular reports identify any service requests that have not been resolved within the pre-determined timeline. This provides greater opportunity for management supervision of personnel and assessment of the impact of deployed resources.
