I am a conscientious RECYCLER though I honestly admit that while I do try my best to recycle in my home & take my own bags to stores, I'm only scratching the surface compared to most people who are diehard recyclers.
I understand the basic ideas behind recycling ... We need less trash in our dumps & we need to do our part to help in the reduction of natural resources.
In researching the recycling programs that are around Lake Ray Hubbard, I'm happy & am thankfull that the Cities of Garland, Rowlett, Rockwall, Wylie, Sachse and Murphy have a recycling programs and understand that having "Curb-Side" pick up for recycling is important to have more of their residents recycle.
The City of Rowlett, City of Rockwall, City of Wylie, and the City of Murphy have recycling pick up ONCE a week & the City of Garland and City of Sachse has it EVERY OTHER week.
