City of Dallas Recycling Guidelines
Did you know? You can recycle just about everything! Think of these four terms: PAPER PLASTIC METAL GLASS. All of the following items may be placed (without sorting) in your blue cart or blue bag(s):
- Glass: unbroken bottles and jars of any color (please rinse!)
- Plastics: bottles, jars, containers labeled #1, 2,3,4,5 and 7 (please rinse!)
You'll find the plastics number in a triangle on the base of the container.
- Metals: steel, tin, and aluminum (please rinse!) Used aerosol (non-hazardous) cans are ok too.
- Paper products: newspapers and inserts, magazines, catalogs, telephone books, mixed office paper, mail and junk mail.
- Cardboard: cardboard boxes, chipboard (like cereal and tissue boxes). Flatten all boxes to get more use of your cart.
Items You Can’t Recycle
- Food waste
- Containers stained with food, unless well-rinsed
- Wet paper products
- Waxed paper or cardboard
- Plate glass (windows or doors)
- Yard waste (grass trimmings, branches, leaves)
Chemical Disposal & New! Electronics Recycling
Electronic waste, or ‘e-waste’, is considered the fastest-growing segment of the municipal waste stream in the United States. Recycling electronics keeps hazardous components like lead, copper, and mercury out of our landfills, and is always the responsible alternative to throwing these items into the garbage!
Luckily, there is a convenient way to dispose of computers, printers, cell phones, paint, pool chemicals, batteries and other materials. The Home Chemical Collection Center (HC3) is located at 11234 Plano Rd., just one mile north of LBJ Freeway. Be sure to take your drivers license and a recent utility bill to prove residency. Operating hours are 9am – 7:30m Tuesdays, 8:30am – 5pm Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 9am – 3pm on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.
The Home Chemical Collection Center accepts only household waste such as paint, pesticides and yard chemicals, pool chemicals, motor oil and other automotive fluids, cleaners, glues and other hobby products, fluorescent light tubes, batteries, etc. Items not accepted include business waste, common trash and recyclables, radioactive materials, explosives, ammunition, or bio-medical waste.
