Sponsored Post – from Austin Resource Recovery

Do you live in an apartment complex in Austin? The city is asking for your help in identifying ways to improve recycling where you live. According to city ordinances, if you live in an apartment complex with five or more units, your property manager has to ensure that you have convenient access to recycling. If you don’t, Austin Resource Recovery (our city’s trash/recycling department) is asking you to let them know by calling 3-1-1.

Why does recycling even matter?
Many people are aware of the environmental benefits of recycling, but as Austin Resource Recovery explains in this new video, recycling also has an economic impact. According to Austin Resource Recovery, recycling contributes $720 million annually to the city’s economy and has created 2,700 permanent local jobs.
