Curbside collection resumes today

Monday, February 22, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

After a pause in operations due to dangerous winter weather, Austin Resource Recovery will resume curbside collection today. The city asks that carts, bulk and large brush be set out on your scheduled pickup day, but notes that it might take a while to catch up. So if your trash is not collected, leave it at the curb as crews work over the next week. Because of the hold on collections last week, customers may have excess. In that case, Austin Resource Recovery asks that you do the following:

Recycling: Once your blue cart is full, place additional recyclables in a cardboard box or other reusable container next to your cart.

Composting: Once your green cart is full, use lawn and leaf bags or a reusable container that is no larger than 34 gallons and no heavier than 50 pounds for any excess material, and place them beside the cart.

Trash: Once your brown cart is full, place any extra bagged household trash from your missed collection beside your cart.
