City to expand curbside composting again

Starting on June 25, Austin Resource Recovery will be collecting compostable materials from an additional 38,000 houses in Austin. At the moment, 52,000 homes are part of the curbside composting program, which collects food, yard trimmings and soiled paper, converting them into compost. For a wealth of information on composting open houses and resources on how to best use the program, head on over to the city website. By 2020, Austin Resource Recovery hopes to expand the service to all curbside customers.
