Residents can skip the lines at Customer Service and purchase rolls of trash or recycling bags from a vending machine at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. The machine takes both cash and credit/debit cards. The new machine is located to the left of Customer Service on the first floor.
Using the machine is simple, visitors insert cash or coins, make their selection, collect their items and be on their way. The machine accepts $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20 bills but will only dispense change in coins.

Residents still have the option of purchasing bags from Customer Service or at any Irving Recreation Center and the price per roll remains the same. The vending machine was installed to give residents the opportunity to bypass lines and purchase their bags quickly and conveniently. Residents using the machine are asked to maintain social distancing guidelines.
