Services

Austin Resource Recovery provides cart-based trash and recycling collection services for some small businesses in residential areas that do not require dumpsters. Most businesses, however, choose a private hauler for their landfill trash, recycling or composting services. Additionally, Austin Resource Recovery manages a commercial trash and recycling contract for businesses located in the Downtown Austin Service District.

Formerly Solid Waste Services, Austin Resource Recovery provides a wide range of residential services designed to transform waste into resources while keeping our community clean.
