Garbage, Brush, and Recycle


Lakewood garbage pickup is on Tuesdays and Fridays each week.  There is no curbside pickup for trash or recycling when your pickup day falls on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Day but you should check with the City or Baytown Sun to confirm.


Recycle for Lakewood is on Fridays. Recycle glass bottles, paper products, 1,2,3,4,5,6,&7 plastic (no plastic bags or Styrofoam), metal cans are picked up at your curb on Mondays in the big green totes or they can be taken to the Green Center.  Electronic and computer waste can be taken to the Green Center for free (must have Baytown water bill and drivers license for electronic & computer recycle to prove you are a resident).

Brush – Trash:

Lakewood Brush pickup is always the week of the 3rd Monday of every month.  You should coordinate large cutting projects with this in mind.  Small amounts of brush and/or leaves can be placed in trashcans for regular bi-weekly pickup.  The City will not pick up piles of MIXED household trash and brush.  They must be separate and placed on your property on the city easement (near the street) – not in a ditch.  The City will not pick up on vacant property.  The city also does not pick up building materials i.e.: boards/fencing/sheetrock, etc.

Residents wishing to dispose of household trash, building materials, old furniture, or recyclable materials may take them to the Green Center. The Cash Only Solid Waste Disposal fees are based on the load per visit and are posted on the site. Baytown residency is required (bring current local water bill and matching driver’s license). Yes it is cheap, and you can keep your yard/garage free of clutter all year.  No hazardous waste please.
