Recycling in Irving

Recycling in Irving

In Irving, more than 60,000 tons of garbage ends up in the city landfill annually, with each Irving resident throwing away approximately 3.7 pounds per day. Approximately 80 percent of that waste is potentially recyclable.

Residents receiving city solid waste services have twice weekly waste and once-a-week recycling collection. In addition, customers receive weekly collection of brush and bulky waste on the same day as curbside recycling.

Recyclables accepted at the curbside include: 

  • Aerosol cans
  • Aluminum and steel food cans
  • Aseptic containers
  • Corrugated boxes (cardboard), flattened
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Paper (all kinds)
  • Paperboard boxes
  • Plastic bags
  • Plastic containers No. 1 – No. 7

For more information about the city's curbside and drop-off recycling programs, as well as special recycling events, visit the Solid Waste Services page.
