Rollout! is a simple app to make figuring out Houston's trash pickup easy!
Forget about peeking outside to see if your neighbor's bins are out, with Rollout! we use your phone to look up your location and instantly let you see your schedule for your neighborhood. You can set up reminders to tell you when to take out your trash to make sure you don't miss recycling day again.

Great idea but wrong
I was excited to see the city rolled out this app. You can enter your address or "Use this Location" and set when to be reminded of all of the different pickup days. But the app has it WRONG. It has my pickup weeks reversed from my actual schedule as shown on the official 2017 Bi-Weekly Collection Schedule. The APP needs some work!
Thanks for fixing the APP and for your developer response. Schedule is populating correctly now. I’ve upgraded to 4 Stars. It would be worth 5 Stars to see current updates from Solid Waste like when they plan to resume heavy trash pickup.
Developer Response ,
Hey sorry there was a bug that has long been fixed! Sorry for the inconvenience, if you ever have a problem feel free to reach out!
More useful than you think!!
You wouldn’t think an app like this would be necessary, right? Wrong! Even the best of us need a reminder (some need a CONSTANT reminder) what week it is. Is this recycling pick up week? Is heavy trash pick up this week or next? Is it junk waste or tree limbs? This simple app puts the answers right at your fingertips. No more trying to maneuver the city website. I use it all the time and my neighbors should too. Being on the board of the HOA not a week goes by that I don’t get a call inquiring about trash pick up. It’s great for new residents who aren’t familiar with the schedule
ALSO I have a friend who is a real estate agent. He is always asking me to use my Rollout app and tell him when pick up is in at a certain address so he can tell contractors or cleaning people at his listings when they can put the trash at the curb. A great tool for anyone cleaning out a house in a neighborhood where they don’t know the schedule. I’ve also been told by a “picker” who goes around the day before heavy trash day looking for treasurers that people throw away, that he uses it to chart his course for the week.
There are a lot of uses for lots of different people. It’s a great app!! Very helpful and easy to use.
Data is backwards again.
Thank you for the app! Quick method to check schedules. However, the schedules are showing backwards. A and B seem to be reversed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
