About the Universal Recycling Ordinance

The Universal Recycling Ordinance (URO) requires minimum recycling standards for all multifamily properties and commercial properties within the City of Austin. The URO also requires food permitted businesses to establish programs to divert organic material (e.g. wasted food, yard trimmings) from landfills. The goal of the URO is to make recycling convenient for tenants and employees and reduce the amount of material sent to landfills.
