City discusses new plan to ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’

Posted on November 7th, 2011 No Comments

Last month, Austin City Council members began discussing a long-term plan to improve the city’s trash management and recycling.  The plan proposes changing the name of the city’s trash department from Austin’s Solid Waste Services Department to Austin Resource Recovery.

The city hired an engineering company to work with them for 18 months on coming up with the plan.  By 2040, officials hope to have reduced the amount of trash being sent to landfills from Austin to less than 10 percent.  About 60 percent of the city’s trash is sent to landfills currently.

The plan includes creating “eco-depots” where Austinites could drop off recyclable or repairable items and including compostables in weekly curbside collections.

If your business needs assistance managing trash or recycling, contact the Austin trash management professionals of WOW Total Cleaning at 512-656-6569 today.
