If you live in the city of Dallas, there is now less to think about when sorting the trash for recycling. The city announced Thursday that cartons, which previously held food or drinks, are now okay to put in recycling bins.
Fort Worth’s ongoing deep budget cuts are starting to mean big problems for the city’s code compliance department and the animal control agency its responsible for. The department desperately needed money to keep up with citizen calls. So where did it turn? Garbage.
For the City of Fort Worth it’s million-dollar problem. The city is working very hard to let people know what you can and cannot recycle.

Twice as much trash is a good thing for Texas. The TCEQ on Thursday announced the state’s recycling and reuse program generated more than 24 million pounds of computer equipment.
This is the perfect weekend to get rid of your old electronics. 1080 KRLD’s Barbara Schwarz explains in the Greener Side:
About 20,000 Texas state workers will have to put out their own trash starting this week.
