This week, letters that can be redeemed for two rolls of 26 blue recycling bags will be mailed to Richardson residents.
The letter from Mayor Bob Townsend can be taken to Huffhines Recreation Center, the Richardson Senior Center, the City Hall Water Customer Service Desk or the Municipal Service Center.
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 the City also collects aluminum, tin, steel, empty aerosol cans, newspapers, mixed paper, paper grocery bags, magazines, catalogs, corrugated cardboard, paperboard/chipboard, phone books, junk mail and glass containers (clear and all color glass).
