Recycling Saturdays Featuring Happy Earth Compost

Bring your sorted glass, paper, plastic and aluminum to a recycling station provided by the City of Houston.

Happy Earth Compost will be at Discovery Green to pick up your compost free of charge every Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm through August 31. Compost can be carried in your own container — that you will then clean out and take home. Happy Earth Compost will also have 5-gallon compost bins available for purchase.
