Garbage Management & Recycling

As of May 1, 2018, AmeriWaste is the primary trash provider for League City’s 32,000 plus residential and commercial customers. To make trash pickup more efficient, the city is now sectioned into three trash zones, rather than the current two. Use the interactive map below to check your pickup days by address:

The zone boundaries were set based on major roadways to make it easier for residents to determine which zone they live in. With the creation of the three zones, many customers will have different days for trash pickup.

Trash Pickup Days

  • Yellow Zone: Mondays and Thursdays
  • Green Zone: Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Blue Zone: Wednesdays and Saturdays

Trash pickup will be between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on pickup days and customers are asked to have their trash cans to the curb by 7 a.m. on their designated days.


To contact AmeriWaste, please call: 281-585-3200.

Resident’s previous recycling bins are being replaced by 48-gallon closed top, wheeled carts which will allow for more recycled items to be disposed of and prevent weather conditions from blowing items into roadways and yards. Recyclable items should be placed directly in the cart. There is no need to place items in a bag.If you have not received a new recycling cart and would like one, please email AmeriWaste or call 281-585-3200. Resident may also place recycling in clear or clear blue, plastic recycling bags that can be purchased at a local hardware or discount store.
