Austin Resource Recovery and Goodwill Central Texas have partnered to offer a free on-call curbside collection service for unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, linens and housewares for reuse or recycling.

Why 5 feet apart?

Most of our trucks are equipped with automatic arms that pick up the carts. If carts are set too close together or too close to other objects, our drivers have to get out of their trucks and move the carts so the automatic arm can pick up the cart without bumping into or knocking over anything.

Large brush collections are suspended until further notice.

After a three-week resumption, we have once again had to suspend large brush collections to assist with essential weekly collections of trash, recycling and compost. We will still provide these collections for customers who have already received a notification postcard for the weeks of July 6- July 24.  Customers can view updated collection schedules with the My Schedule tool or by downloading the Austin Recycles app. 

Bulk collections are suspended until further notice.

Austin Resource Recovery provides weekly, curbside trash collection to single-family homes, duplexes and triplexes in Austin.

The City of Austin has waived all extra trash fees until further notice 

Given the unprecedented situation, we understand most households will be generating extra trash and we want to make these uncertain times easier for all.

Help protect the health and safety of our staff; please remember to bag and tie all trash to keep it contained.

Use a BPI-certified compostable bag or paper bag for compost. Do not bag recycling.
