Description

The Curbside Organics Collection Pilot is an expansion of the department's current weekly curbside yard trimmings collection. Since 1989, Austin Resource Recovery has partnered with Austin Water Utility to compost yard trimmings collected at the curb into Dillo Dirt.
Curbside organics collection is the City's next step toward collecting additional organic materials at the curb. This service allows residents to place large quantities of yard trimmings, as well as food scraps and other food-soiled paper, directly into a 96-gallon green organics cart. The organic materials collected in the green cart are composted at a local composting facility using a different process.
