Trash and recycling service on today’s collection route is expected to be delayed due to continuing cleanup efforts related to last Sunday’s severe weather event. The delays will be noticed more in the hardest hit areas of the storm where roadside debris is slowing down normal collection of trash and recycling.

Residents are asked to leave out their bags for pickup and crews will be out again early tomorrow morning to complete collection in any areas not cleared today.

The storm this past weekend caused extensive wind damage in parts of southwest Richardson with broken tree limbs, downed trees and some damage to homes and vehicles due to trees falling on them. Please visit the City’s website ( or follow the City’s social media channels on Nextdoor, Facebook and Twitter for updates on the cleanup and impacts on services.
