RICHARDSON – The City of Richardson’s annual Blue Bag Letters were printed and stuffed into envelopes this morning, and the letters will be delivered to the post office this afternoon and should be arriving in mailboxes sometime this week.

Once received, the letters can be taken to one of several City facilities (listed in the letter and down below) to be redeemed for two rolls of 26 blue recycling bags (52 total). There is no expiration date on the letters (past year’s letters are still redeemable as well).

Through the Blue Bag Program, homeowners can combine all of their recyclable material into one bag and place it out for weekly pickup service. A list of items that are accepted can be found on the City’s recycling webpage, which also includes maps showing the weekly recycling pickup days for various areas of the city.

Richardson also provides a drop-off recycling center that is open from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. seven days a week, located at the Westside Pump Station, 101 N. Cottonwood Dr.
