A leap too far

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Residents who recycle may have noticed a bit of an issue while looking over the new recycling collection calendars from Austin Resource Recovery. Significantly, the 2016 calendar fails to acknowledge that this year is a leap year, and the domino effect of that exclusion has rendered 80 percent of the calendar inaccurate. ARR is aware of the problem and will be sending out corrected calendars in the mail. Austin Resource Recovery also offers residents an optional notification about their collection schedules via weekly text or email. Interested recycling enthusiasts are invited to sign up for that service through the department’s website.
