City of Dallas
It’s past time that Dallas city officials finally got serious about waste reduction. Luckily, they will soon be considering universal recycling access in all multi-family apartments and condos AND separating compostable materials from bulky trash in residential neighborhoods. We need you to raise your voice and tell them to follow through on these two key initiatives. Add you name to our petition and send a personalized message today!
More than half of the city’s residents live in apartments and condos, while a paltry 24% of properties offer basic recycling services. Dallas can do better! Tell city officials we need recycling in all multi-family properties by January 2020. In residential neighborhoods, Dallas offers monthly collection of yard trimmings, other compostable brush materials, and bulk trash. Unfortunately, many compostable materials can’t be recovered since they are often combined in trucks with bulk trash. Other cities have found solutions for mulching and composting brush. Tell Dallas officials, we can do the same!
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 are able to secure recycling and composting services for all residents and businesses.
Sign this petition to send a message to the Richardson Mayor and City Council to say we need a Zero Waste Resolution.
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, we need to secure recycling ¬and composting services for all residents and businesses.
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!
