A recent independent study found that more recyclables are going to the landfill than are being placed in residents’ blue carts. In fact, 44 percent of what is found in Austin’s residential trash stream could be recycled.
To turn this around, the City wants to learn more about the barriers between residents and their blue recycling carts. For that reason, Austin Resource Recovery is asking for “insights” from the community. Unlike “ideas” which are suggestions for solving a problem, “insights” reveal the root of the problem and this more detailed information will help ARR understand the obstacles which will allow for more and better opportunities for recycling.
Austin Resource Recovery will be at the market to hear your thoughts on “How might we put fewer recyclables in the trash?”
