Effective Oct. 1, the price of trash and recycling bags sold by the City of Irving will increase due to higher production costs. The price increases are a result of increasing resin costs from the material supplier of the city’s bag vendor. The new price includes sales tax.
NEW TRASH AND RECYCLING BAG PRICING
- Heavy-duty black trash bags, 50-count roll | $10
- Heavy-duty blue recycling bags, 50-count roll | $15
