You can help reach our Zero Waste goal to drastically reduce the amount of trash we send to landfills. Pledge to do your part to help our community keep at least 75 percent of trash out of landfills by 2020 and reach Austin's long-term Zero Waste goal.

Recyclable items are all around your house, not just in the kitchen. This new year, pledge to recycle more items in your bathroom, including:

  • Plastic bottles (shampoo, shower gel, lotion, mouthwash, makeup remover and more)
  • Cardboard packaging (for toothpaste or bar soap)
  • Toilet paper rolls and tissue boxes (remove plastic wrap)

Join the 1,000+ Austinites who pledge to take their recycling to the next level.
