Composting collection delays

We continue to see high volumes of composting material, so we continue to run behind on composting collections. Please leave any uncollected material at the curb to allow crews to catch up. We will collect the material as soon as we are able. We apologize for the inconvenience. Download the Austin Recycles mobile app or sign up for reminders to get essential service alerts


Storm debris removal update

(April 8, 2021)

Many Austin Resource Recovery customers put in a special request for storm debris collection.

The high volume of storm debris material is taking longer than expected, and collection can take more than a month. Please leave the material out and we will collect it as soon as we are able. We have now dedicated special crews to collect all remaining storm debris caused by February’s Winter Storm Uri. The prolonged extreme weather event created unforeseen quantities of vegetative storm debris. Here are some other options for storm debris removal:

The Recycle and Reuse Drop-off Center has reopened, by appointment only, following a temporary closure due to COVID-19 safety concerns.
