Curbside recycling in Houston -- suspended since Hurricane Ike made landfall more than one month ago -- will resume next week, Houston's Solid Waste Department announced Monday.
Meanwhile, about 200 debris contractor teams will begin removing hazardous trees or limbs hanging over public right-of-ways.
As most solid waste employees had been diverted to the debris removal effort, the department was unable to begin collection of recyclables until next Monday, when households in the "B" week can put out their recyclables on regularly scheduled days. Households in the "A" week can do so starting Nov. 3.
