Event description

Description

Significant volumes of material are abandoned on the curb or near dumpsters when students move in and out of apartments and houses in West Campus each year, bound for the landfill. Austin Resource Recovery is exploring ways to move this material towards a higher-and-better use, and we need your input!

Your attendance at this meeting does not obligate you to future participation. Meeting goals include:

  • Bringing together reuse organizations who could potentially benefit from materials diverted through the pilot

  • Discussing current initiatives

  • Understanding current challenges and needs

  • Brainstorming potential solutions

  • Understanding interest and willingness to participate in this initiative


After receiving input from reuse organizations and seven other external stakeholder groups, we plan to create a working group to implement a pilot next summer. Potential benefits for this project include:

  • Moving material to benefit others in our local community

  • Increasing citywide diversion rate

  • Minimizing safety/health hazards (e.g. material in right-of-way, uncollected debris that attracts pests)

  • Decreasing complaints in the area
