On Friday’s Houston Matters: On Sept. 1, many new laws go into effect from the past legislature. We learn about a few of the 820 bills that will become law and how they might affect you.

Also this hour: We take a tour of a Houston recycling center and see how the facility sorts all the valuable cardboard, plastic, and newspaper from, well, the garbage.

Plus, we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.

And, this weekend, the Houston Symphony will screen Disney's The Little Mermaid with a live orchestra performing the score.
