TIP Warehouse The TIP Warehouse program was boosted in the Fall of 2002 after receiving a recycling grant through the Houston-Galveston Area Council. The program is intended to reintroduce construction and deconstruction materials into the economic mainstream. Useable materials are brought into the City's Transfer Station Facility, weighed, and then stored in the TIP Warehouse.
Indigent homeowners (meeting qualifications) and non-profit organizations enter the Disposal and Recycling Facility, weigh vehicles in empty, complete and sign a voucher, obtain the needed materials, and then weigh loaded vehicles out as they exit the facility. Recycling staff tracks the number of vouchers issued as well as the weight of the materials diverted from the landfill.
