Residents will receive a letter in the mail this month that can be taken to one of several City facilities to be redeemed for two rolls of 26 blue recycling bags (52 total).

Through the Blue Bag Program, homeowners can combine all of their recyclable material into one bag and place it out for weekly pickup service. The City recycles all plastics #1-7 (with the exception of Styrofoam), and also collects aluminum, tin, steel, empty aerosol cans, newspapers, mixed paper, paper grocery bags, magazines, catalogs, corrugated cardboard, paperboard/chipboard, junk mail, glass containers (clear and all color glass) and pots and pans.

The City of Richardson also provides a drop-off recycling center that is open to residents from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week. It is located at the Westside Pump Station at 101 N. Cottonwood Dr., near the intersection of Cottonwood Drive and Belt Line Road. For more information on the City’s recycling program visit
