Free Recycling Bags


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
