Keep Pearland Beautiful launches curbside textile recycling
Pearland residents are now able to recycle unwanted clothing, shoes and home goods. Keep Pearland Beautiful has partnered with Simple Recycling to provide free curbside textile recycling once a week on the regular recycling collection day. This program will target textiles going into landfills, not items being donated to charities, churches, non-profits and other organizations.

Plans progress for a SH 288 frontage road
Plans to construct a northbound frontage road from CR 59 to FM 518/Broadway to include a u-turn lane at CR 59 are in the works. This $9.9 billion road network would provide relief from SH 288 for vehicles traveling from CR 59 to FM 518 and provide managed access points for developments east of SH 288.

Safe Exchange Zone provides safe place for residents
The Police Department’s Safe Exchange Zone Initiative attempts to address safety and awareness concerns regarding internet-based purchases from websites such as Craigslist and EBay, as well as various local Facebook groups, or any other item advertised for sale from an individual, regardless of the source of the advertised sale. While many websites, including those previously mentioned, are credible and heavily utilized, their popularity make them an easy target for criminal activity from online predators. The City of Pearland offers a secure location for Pearland residents to help ensure their safety and to minimize the opportunity for an encounter to go wrong.
