Spring Cleanup Week

Tomball Spring Cleanup Week

Each year, the City of Tomball hosts the annual Spring Cleanup Week in April in conjunction with Earth Day. Throughout the week, the City offers a free chipping service for brush and small limbs as well as providing an additional drop off location for hard-to-dispose-of items. The week culminates with the City's Consolidated Recycling Day event, a one-day drive-thru recycling event at Lone Star College - Tomball.
