OneDAY Dallas: Please stop calling me

Dallas is going to once-a-week trash and recycling collection in March. And they’re letting us all know with a campaign called OneDAY Dallas. Which is great. I’m glad they’re preparing us. But in the past two weeks or so, my cellphone has rung three times with an automated message telling me about it. And once really was enough.

We’d be interested in hearing from readers who think one trash and recycling collection per week isn’t enough.

Next month, the city is holding community meetings about the change. Here is a list of theOak Cliff dates:

Jan. 5, 6:30 p.m., Methodist Dallas Medical Center’s Hitt Auditorium
Jan. 14, 7 p.m., Park in the Woods Recreation Center
Jan. 23, 10 a.m., Hampton Illinois Branch Library
Jan. 30 10 a.m., Dallas West Branch Library

    Since we started Recycling we typically only put our trash bin out once a week so I like the idea of going to once a week trash pick up. I hope this will encourage more people to recycle. I have been amazed at the number of things that can be recycled.

    Yes, for those of us who have small households, once a week is plenty. Since I’ve had the recyclying bin, my regular bin almost never fills up.

    I don’t have kids but my recycling bin fills up more quickly that the trash can so this works for me.

    I love the idea! This will encourage people to recycle more and consume less. The only downside is that people may have a tendency to just place bags next to their bin which can cause a huge mess. I bet trash compactors will be flying off the shelves soon.

    Once-a-week pick-up is NOT enough! When you have children, you need pick-up more than once a week!
