Plano Doubles Down on Recycling

Feb 01, 2021 08:30AM ● By Bernice Butler
Recycle Right Plano is the residential recycling awareness campaign for the city of Plano, with three recurring events to recycle electronic materials: the first Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to noon at First United Methodist Church (3160 East Spring Creek Parkway); the second Saturday of the month from 9 to 11 a.m. at St. Andrew United Methodist Church (5801 West Plano Parkway); and the third Saturday of the month from 9 to 11 a.m. at Christ United Methodist Church (3101 Coit Road). The main goals are to increase the residential recycling rate and decrease contamination in residential recycling carts. Multi-family and commercial tenants have special procedures.

With the commitment of local businesses, Commercial Recycling has increased the city's diversion rate from 5 percent in 1999 to more than 40 percent. The commercial sector accounts for over 70 percent of Plano's solid waste material, and progress is achieved through the construction and demolition recycling program, singe-stream recycling and the green business certification program. Electronic waste is not part of the residential recycling waste stream, and United Electronic Recycling has been named the official electronics recycler.
