Affected properties must submit the online Recycling Plan by Feb. 1 of each year. Properties have the opportunity to submit a waiver or alternative compliance request through the Recycling Plan.
Properties are required to offer recycling for these materials (at a minimum):
Paper (including mixed paper and office paper)
PETE and HDPE plastic (#1 and #2)
Glass bottles and jars
Cardboard and boxboard
*Alternative materials can be proposed in the annual Recycling Plan Form
Onsite composting of yard trimmings, food scraps or other compostable materials may be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Austin Resource Recovery Director as an alternative collection method if well managed and not a nuisance or sanitation problem.
