About the Request to Expand

The Greenhouse Road Landfill is planning a 30 acre expansion that will extend the life of the landfill to another 30 years and become a prominent eyesore along Clay Road and Greenhouse Road. If approved, the filled landfill will be 6 stories above ground level. This area of West Houston used to be more rural when the landfill was built in the early 1980’s, but now it is a well developed residential area. We want to clean up our area and keep it safe for our families. Expanding the landfill further into our community is not acceptable.
