Curbside recycling pickups are going away in Austin, with a new recycling bin taking its place starting Friday, March 26.
Residents of Austin could place recyclables at curbside for pickup every second Tuesday. The new bin will be located at the sewer plant, located on South Fifth Street off York Road. This is the same site where the large item dumpster is placed.
Both the large item dumpster and the recycling bin will be available to the public from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each Friday and every third Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
The final date this month for both large items and recyclables is Friday, March 26.
In April, dates will be April 9, 16 and 17, 23 and 30. April 2 is Good Friday, and both services will be closed.
Recycling helps not only the environment but also the City of Austin, explained Mayor Roger Hawkins. Recycled items stay out of landfills and thus cut down on the amount of trash city residents pay through their taxes to transport and dump.
