Image result for trash    DEBRIS PICK UP SCHEDULE

The City staff has started picking up the storm related debris on Reed Rd and Rogers Rd.  The City Council will be taking action on an Interlocal Agreement with Brazoria County on 9-11-2017 for the County to complete the rest of the clean up.  An update will be posted as soon as soon as possible.  We understand the debris is piling up and are doing our best to get it removed.

 To expedite this debris removal  process, please follow the following rules:

  • Before cleaning debris, digging on your property or to  locate underground natural gas lines and other underground utility  lines, call 811, the nationwide Call Before You Dig number.
  • Be  aware of where your natural gas meter is located. As debris is put out  for heavy trash pickup, make sure it is placed away from the meter. In  many areas the meter may be located near the curb. If debris is near a  gas meter, the mechanized equipment used by trash collectors could pull  up the meter, damaging it and causing a potentially hazardous situation.  If this happens, leave the area immediately and call CenterPoint Energy  at 888-876-5786.


Manvel City Hall and Municipal Court have been relocated to the Manvel  EMS building at 6931 Masters, Manvel Tx.  Please call 281-489-0630 x0  for assistance.
