Looking for ways to save some money and protect the planet this summer? As of this year, all Austin Resource Recovery curbside customers now have access to curbside composting services. That means that if you live in a single-family home (or in a fourplex development or smaller) composting is easier than ever before! And you can even decide to switch to a smaller trash cart (since so much of what you previously threw away can now be composted) and save some money in the process.
You can learn all about curbside composting in Austin – who has access to it, how to compost properly, and how to prevent your compost cart from smelling – with our latest guide.
