Austin Resource Recovery (ARR) currently provides Curbside Composting Collection to nearly three-quarters of its curbside customers; around 148,000 households. ARR plans to extend the service to all remaining curbside customers in 2021.
The program collects food scraps, yard trimmings and food-soiled paper, and converts them into nutrient-rich compost. This program is part of the City of Austin’s zero waste goal to divert 90 percent of materials from landfills by 2040.
