Where to Drop Off Recycling (for apartment dwellers)

If you’re an apartment dweller looking to recycle, here is a list of drop-off sites courtesy of Dallas City Hall.

*If you’re wondering why no one is picking up your recycling this Friday, it’s because the good people of the Dallas sanitation department came on Wednesday. They’ll be back on Wednesday, December 30.
