City of Arlington
Arlington City Council is finally considering a proposal to expand recycling to multi-family residents, almost 20 years after providing recycling services to Arlington single-family neighborhoods.
However, the council recommended that the city create a recycling policy that only applies to apartments that haven’t been built yet. We can’t accept this half measure that ignores the tens of thousands of residents who already live in apartments without recycling.
Sign this petition to send a personalized message to the Arlington Mayor and City Council to say we need recycling for all existing and future apartments. Also, tell them we need to begin composting the residential brush materials that are set out in neighborhoods instead of throwing it in the city’s landfill!
City of Richardson
Like Dallas, Richardson has basic recycling services for all of its single-family residents. While these programs are important, the vast majority of materials used in the city are still going to area landfills. This will continue until we design programs and policies that target more recyclable materials from residents and businesses. Surrounding communities are already doing this. Richardson leaders need to take action.

City of Plano
Plano already has some of the best recycling rates and services for all of its single-family residents. While these programs are important, there are still many apartment residents who are left out — and many businesses could be doing more to prevent waste.
Plano is currently drafting a long-term solid waste plan and has not announced any formal process to include contributions from residents. We want the city to create a voluntary citizen’s commission for residents to contribute their ideas on which services and programs are most important for the future of Plano!
