Brush and Bulky Item Collection (BABIC)
This service helps residents dispose of large amounts of brush or oversized items like unwanted appliances or furniture that cannot be placed out for regular trash collection.

What Can Be Recycled?
Recycling helps prevent nearly 86.9 million tons of material from being disposed of in the US each year. Help prevent unnecessary waste by recycling approved empty, clean and dry items.

Compost & Mulch
Composting or mulching your food scraps and yard waste will decrease the amount of trash Richardson sends to the landfill by 20-30%. Learn how you can help keep these materials out of landfills.
