The Waste & Recycling Hauler Licensing Program supports the Code Compliance Department’s goal to preserve Austin’s quality of life.
Did you know?
The City of Austin spends $250,000 per year cleaning property where furniture, tires and junk have been illegally dumped. On June 28, 2012, the Austin City Council approved Chapter 15-6 Article 3, which regulates private solid waste collection. If an unlicensed contractor illegally dumps your trash or recycling, you may face a maximum fine of $2,000 and one year in jail. So, if you are going to throw it out, be sure it gets disposed of legally. Take your stuff to the nearest landfill, recycling facility or hire a licensed hauler (look for a City of Austin license on the vehicle door).
