Waste Removal & Recycling Franchise Opportunities in Houston, TX

Recycling has become more expensive for residential and commercial users as of summer 2019, with MRF tip fees equal or greater than disposal fees in some cases, according to Colorado’s Department of Public Health & Environment. The agency reports drop-off programs are struggling (some have closed) and some MRFs are having trouble getting fiber or mixed plastics to market. In response, CDPHE has revised grants programs, conducted MRF outreach and worked to remind facilities of material turnover requirements.

The agency also conducted a survey, designed by The Recycling Partnership, of all state MRFs to identify top contaminants. Based on results, it has shared educational material focused on bags and food contamination.



Founded in 1931 as the Houston Fat Stock Show, this annual event is now known as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. From relatively humble beginnings, the Show has grown over the years to encompass a rodeo as well as a bar-b-que contest, a 10k run and a 5k walk. Pig racing, a carnival, and a wine competition are also part of the festivities.


Also known as George Bush Intercontinental Airport, the George Bush International Airport is the current name of the former Houston Intercontinental Airport. The facility was renamed in 1997 in honor of the 41st president of the United States, George H.W. Bush.


Anyone who visits Houston should know about Buffalo Bayou. Originating in the prairie area near Katy in Fort Bend County, the Bayou flows roughly 53 miles through the Houston Strip Channel. Eventually, it empties into Galveston Bay and ultimately the Gulf of Mexico.


The Addicks and Barker Reservoirs themselves are worthy of attention from anyone interested in Houston. The original plan for both was to provide greater control over flooding along the prairie area. Between the two of them, the reservoirs provide 26,000 acres of open land that allows for water runoff as well as storage. The control provided by the reservoirs minimizes the risk of flooding in the area along the Buffalo Bayou as it passes through Houston.


How does Houston rank in terms of humidity among U.S. cities? The ranking may surprise you. It’s currently considered the third-highest humid city within the nation. That places it behind the first-ranked New Orleans and the second-ranked Jacksonville, FL.


Like many other things, real estate in Houston, TX is big. Expensive homes are not unusual in the city, including condos, lofts, and apartments closer to the City Center. In other areas of the city, homes are often found on larger amounts of acreage and can cost in the millions.

It’s already established that Houston has high temperatures and high humidity much of the year. How hot can it get in Houston? The single highest temperature reading taken in the city was 109 degrees Fahrenheit. That reading was taken at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport on September 4, 2000. That record was reached once again with a reading at the airport on August 27, 2011.


When it comes to annual rainfall, there’s no doubt that Houston enjoys plenty. The average annual rainfall for the Greater Houston area is a little more than 49 inches. That compares to Seattle – a city that’s more commonly known for rainfall – with an annual average of a little more than 37 inches.


While a large metropolitan area, Houston is not as high above sea level as many may think. In fact, the City Center is around 43 feet above sea level.


It should come as no surprise that Houston goes in for large entertainment events. One of the largest to take place in the city occurred on April 5, 1986. Estimates for attendance ranged from a million to 1.5 million.


Visitors to Houston can spend days in the Museum District and still not get around to everything. With its beginnings dating back to 1977, the District is currently home to 19 different museums. It’s estimated that more than 8 million people visit the district during any given year.
