What we do

Go Green Galveston (G3) is a curbside residential recycling service provided to residents of Galveston, Texas. The G3 project is designed to bring awareness to the environment, create jobs in our community, and maintain the beauty of the island we love.  We also provide service to multi-unit complexes and businesses on the island.

How it works

We offer weekly pick up of recycling material on either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday depending on your location. Glass is picked up on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.

Containers are provided for you.  Just place it on the curb on your pick up day and we take care of the rest!

We accept paper, plastic bottles, metal cans, styrofoam, cardboard, plastic bags & aluminum foil on weekly service days.

Glass is picked up every 1st & 3rd Monday of the month.  Only glass will be picked up on those days.  A reusable bag is provided!

Multi-unit complexes and businesses can choose a package based on their individual needs.  Please, contact us for more information.
