About Austin Resource Recovery
Austin Resource Recovery provides residential curbside collection of trash, recycling, composting and yard trimmings. Additional services include street sweeping, dead animal collection, operating a drop-off center for household hazardous waste and collecting bulk items and large brush.
In response to the increasing concerns of COVID-19, and for the safety of our staff and residents, the Recycle & Reuse Drop-off Center is closed to the public and drop-offs will no longer be accepted. However, under special circumstances, Austin-Travis County residents can schedule contactless pick-up of household hazardous waste from their home for safe disposal. To schedule a pick-up of household hazardous waste and learn more about the process, please call (512) 974-4343. Household hazardous waste includes cleaning products, paint and thinners, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries, and more.
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 ARR 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.
