As the situation with COVID-19 extends, many are wondering about the continuation of recycling and household hazardous waste services. Whether these services are currently running is dependent on your city or town. Check with your City, County, or waste service provider to see if curbside or drop off locations are open. If someone in your household has tested positive for Coronavirus, it is advised that you do not recycle until the household is clear and tests negative.
Please do not place any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in your recycle bin. For proper disposal, check out the EPA's video on PPE Disposal.
If you have further questions about recycling and sustainable management of food during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency, please visit the EPA's web page for guidance.
Time To Recycle is an educational effort that encourages residents to properly dispose of or recycle items, reducing the impact on the region's landfills. It was created by and is maintained by the region's solid waste advisory committee, the Resource Conservation Council (RCC) of the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
