Although there is no registration fee, vendors must adhere to a Marketing Agreement. To purchase Dillo Dirt™, starting December 2, 2013, vendors must pick up a Vendor Card from the Austin Water downtown office (625 E. 10th St.). Vendors must pre-pay for the Dillo Dirt™ before arriving at Hornsby Bend to pick up a load. Payment can be made over the telephone or in person. Truck drivers must present the Vendor Card at the time of loading. Loading only takes place at the Hornsby Bend site. Six cubic yards is the minimum amount of Dillo Dirt™ loaded to registered vendors' trucks. If you would like to find out more or sign up as a vendor, contact Jody Slagle at 512-972-1954.
