Save Money (and the Planet) with Austin’s Curbside Composting Collection

Composting in Austin has never been easier with the ever-expanding Curbside Composting Collection program. The program collects food scraps, yard trimmings and food soiled paper from your green cart, and converts them into nutrient-rich compost.

SAVE MONEY

After putting food scraps and food-soiled paper in your green cart, you will have less trash to throw away each week. This may allow you to downsize to a smaller trash cart – and the smaller the cart, the less it costs you each month.

SAVE THE PLANET

A recent study showed that almost half of everything residential customers send to the landfill is compostable material.

When buried in a landfill, compostable materials do not break down as they would in nature or in a compost pile. They decompose anaerobically, without oxygen, and in the process become the number one source of human-caused methane released into the atmosphere.

Compost helps soil retain water, and fertilizes lawns and gardens without using chemicals.
