Organics Committee will be meeting this Friday, July 15 at noon. Get an update on the Universal Recycling Ordinance which will require all City food permit holders to divert organic waste. They can reduce, reuse through donations to people, reuse as animal feed and/or recycle as compost. If you are a business impacted by the URO, let’s hear from you! If you have ideas on ways to make this more effective, to encourage participation or just want to hear what’s happening, you are all invited.

Validated parking available in the garage. Bring your lunch on Friday and we’ll bring the compost collection bucket!

The Austin Zero Waste Advisory Commission was created to review and analyze the policies and resources relating to solid waste management in the city and advise City Council on solid waste management policies and resources and provide assistance to council to ensure its citizens that the City provides an economical and environmentally safe system of waste reduction, recovery and disposal. The meetings of the ZWAC are held on the second Wednesday of each month and are open to the public.
