Curbside Composting Information Table/Tabla de información de compostaje

Saturday, August 11, 2018 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

If your home is part of the City’s Curbside Composting service and you live in the Circle S Ridge and Southwood Neighborhoods, and are part of GAVA, please join the City's outreach team on Saturday August 11, between 10:30pm-12:00pm at the Pleasant Hill Library!

The Austin Resource Recovery outreach team is hosting a Come-and-Go Pop-up, providing a free kitchen countertop compost collector, compostable bags, while supplies last, and cool facts about how to use your compost cart. Stop by and join us for a few minutes!

And remember that you can fill your composting carts on a weekly basis with food scraps (including raw and cooked meat and bones), natural fibers, yard trimmings and food-soiled paper (like pizza boxes). Those materials are made into nutrient-rich compost at a local composting facility instead of going into the landfill.


Si tu hogar recibe el servicio de compostaje de la Ciudad, y vives en los vecindarios Circle S Ridge, Southwood, o sos parte de GAVA, visita al equipo de educación el sábado 11 de agosoto, entre las 10:30-12 p.m. en la biblioteca de Pleasant Hill.

El Departamento de Recuperación de Recursos de Austin está organizando un evento donde puedes obtener un contenedor para sobras de comida gratis y bolsas para compostaje gratis, mientras duren las reservas, e información interesante sobre cómo usar tu bote verde.

Recuerda, puedes llenar tu bote verde cada semana con sobras de comida (incluyendo carne y huesos crudos o cocidos), fibras naturales, recortes del jardín y papel sucio con comida (como cajas de pizza). Esos materiales se convierten en compost rico en nutrientes en instalaciones locales de compostaje en vez de entrados en el vertedero.
