One free roll of blue recycling bags will be available to Richardson residents next Friday and Saturday as the City celebrates America Recycles Day.
The availability of free bags comes as the City Council has placed an increased focus on recycling; making it one of the key themes in the City’s 2014-15 budget. Additional funding was included this year to raise recycling awareness and to provide more programs to help boost the amount of material that is diverted from landfills.
There is a limit of one role of bags per household. Free bags will be available at the following locations:
Friday, Nov. 14, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Richardson City Hall/Civic Center
411 West Arapaho Rd.
Saturday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Huffhines Recreation Center
200 N. Plano Rd.
Heights Recreation Center
711 W. Arapaho Rd.
Fire Station #6 (Near Breckinridge Park)

Empty the Shelter partners invite the public to come out and find their perfect match on Empty the Shelter Day, to be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.*
Empty the Shelter Day is an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. An unprecedented number of cities and animal shelters, both municipal and non-profit, throughout North Texas have joined forces to offer free adoptions* that one very special day.
This is the largest adoption effort ever held in North Texas and what the partners hope to be the largest multi-city, multi-county adoption event in the United States.
Please visit each of the websites below for locations, adoption policies and other important information regarding Empty the Shelter Day. Together with the North Texas community, these groups are hoping to find forever homes for all of the animals in their shelters.
*Other fees and participating shelter times may vary
