As residents clean-up storm debris on their property, the City of Seabrook would like for everyone to keep in mind the following city processes and procedures.
- Waste Management will not collect storm debris – this includes, but is not limited to fencing, large tree limbs, decking and other storm-related objects. Waste Management will collect household garbage, recycling and normal bulk items which are limited to two-cubic-yards. Items that Waste Management is unable to pickup will be tagged by collectors with a pink tag. Please ensure that debris is separated from residential garbage and recycling.
- City of Seabrook employees are unable to assist with the clean-up of storm debris on private property; this includes tree limbs, vegetation, decking and other items. Storm debris that washed ashore on private property is the responsibility of the property owner to remove and clean up. Do not dump storm debris in city parks or in business dumpsters.
- While Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Seabrook Mayor Thom Kolupski issued disaster declarations, the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) has not issued a disaster declaration for Texas, therefore, the City of Seabrook is unable to execute a storm-debris removal contract at this time.
- Residents are encouraged to contact their insurance company or independent contractors for assistance with storm debris removal. Residents may also consider purchasing a Waste Management Bagster® and schedule a pickup of the items placed in the bag. Purchasing and pickup fees are the responsibility of the homeowner.
The City of Seabrook appreciates everyone’s understanding and will continue to assess storm damages. As a reminder, residents and business owners are encouraged to complete a Storm Damage Report if their homes or businesses sustained storm damages. The report is available online at www.seabrooktx.gov/storm-damage.
