Good news for park recycling

Wednesday, July 20, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

As a follow-up to a story that we published last week, the Austin Monitor has learned that the Austin Parks Foundation has chipped in to speed up the process of providing recycling at city park facilities. To be precise, the foundation has given the city’s Parks and Recreation Department $50,000 for recycling containers in Austin’s recreation center, athletic fields and pools and the Barton Creek Greenbelt. The funding will be used in the upcoming fiscal year, and the foundation is hopeful that the installation of containers will roll out later this year. A representative for the organization told the Monitor that it plans to fund more in the future.
