Go Green with Blue Bags: Recycling Made Easy


Recycling in Irving is simple: Take accepted household items, place them in a blue bag, tie it up and place it at the curb for collection. The City of Irving Solid Waste Services Department collects blue bagged recyclables once per week, during regular residential collection. Crews will take cardboard boxes, too. Residents simply need to flatten boxes and place them under a blue bag.

Most household items are recyclable, including rinsed glass bottles and jars, cereal boxes or similar paperboard boxes, newspapers, and rinsed plastic containers such as milk or laundry detergent bottles. Items not accepted include soiled or contaminated food boxes/containers, bottles that contained hazardous materials such as motor oil, Styrofoam and grocery/produce bags.

Visit for a full list of accepted and not accepted items.
