New tool answers question, ‘How do I get rid of this junk?’

Friday, February 26, 2021 by Tai Moses

A handy new tool called the Recycling and Waste Drop-Off Locator helps Travis County residents who are engaged in storm cleanup find “the most convenient and appropriate location for different types of storm damage debris and other waste materials,” according to a news release from the county. From mattresses, furniture, garbage and batteries to paint, electronics, tires and construction debris, the locator will find a place to dispose of, reuse or upcycle it. The menu allows users to select the material they’re trying to dispose of or enter an address to find a nearby drop-off location. If you have items that can be reused, visit the Austin Reuse Directory for instructions on where to take them.
