Change our garbage collection to just once a week and have plastic bins.

Q: I would like to ask that we change our garbage collection to just once a week and have plastic bins, one for recycling and one for non-recycled trash. We are putting ridiculous amounts of plastic bags into our environment. Carrollton is doing it and it’s working great. Why can’t Irving? The amount of money for the bins will certainly be paid for in reduced pick up. Or the homeowner could be responsible for paying for them.

 A: Thank you for contacting the BFF email. This is an issue that the City Council and the Mayor have been looking at. Please know that this email will be shared with them as well as the Director of Solid Waste Services Travis Switzer. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any further budget suggestions.
