Austin Resource Recovery provides a wide range of services designed to transform waste into resources while keeping our community clean. Our goal is to reach Zero Waste by 2040, which means reducing the amount of trash sent to landfills by 90 percent.
Beginning October 2, 2017, Austin Recourse Recovery (ARR) will provide Curbside Composting Collection for approximately 54,000 customers and plans to add all curbside customers to the service by 2020. The program collects food scraps, yard trimmings and food soiled paper, and converts them into nutrient-rich compost. This program is part of the City of Austin’s Zero Waste goal to divert 90 percent of materials from landfills by 2040. Visit austintexas.gov/austincomposts for more information.
