Report the need for residential debris pickup by calling (713) 837-0311. Make sure you report the issue as “STORM DEBRIS.”

And if you see any trees blocking roadways or if any street lights need to be reset again, call Houston 311 or (713) 837-0311.

Redbud Lane in Forest Cove


Crews began debris pickup Tuesday.

  • Residents should separate piles when placing debris at the curb.
  • Please keep roadways clear, so crews can maneuver in and around affected areas more easily. 
  • Have contractors haul off materials from their repairs.
Palmetto Lane in Forest Cove is narrowed to one lane making it difficult for crews to work as residents try to maneuver around them.

Numbers to Call, How to Follow Up

Please continue to utilize Houston 311 to make your initial report for “storm debris” and follow up by sending your service request number to Put “Storm Debris” in the subject line. This will let the District E office track cases to make sure they are handled expeditiously.

Should you have any questions please contact the District E office by emailing or call (832) 393-3008.
