This October, the City of Pearland is joining the campaign for Unblocktober! Unblocktober is geared toward improving the health of the city’s drainage ditches and storm sewers. When sewers and ditches get blocked, foul waste flooding, pollution, and costly repairs may need to take place due to compromises in our sewer system.
Over the course of this month, the City of Pearland will release some tips and tricks to keep the city’s system healthy on their Facebook page. First up-- the importance of using trash carts.
We got our cans. We had some extra bags. Seems you have to buy "pink tags," one per bag. You then have to call and tell them. "Just wanted to tell you I will be using 3 of my pink tags on Thursday, or whatever your day is." If you don't have the tags, and notify them, the extra bags will not be picked up. It is my understanding those pink tags only exist in cyber space, you don't get them, but you get to use them. This one is going to take some getting used to.
