Austin Resource Recovery (ARR) provides curbside services to manage your landfill trash, yard trimmings, composting, recycling, and bulk collection. In NUNA, collection is weekly for yard trimmings, composting, trash. Recycling pick up occurs every other week. Collection day is currently on Friday mornings. Bulk collection is provided twice a year. You should receive a postcard notification when Bulk Collection is upcoming.
You can order your curbside services to be started by calling Austin Resource Recovery. Contact details can be found on the Austin City website. You can choose your order from among varying cart sizes for various prices depending on your household needs.
Place your carts at the curbside before 6:30 am on collection day (currently Friday) or the previous evening late. And please remove the carts from the curbside as early as practical after pickup to free up spaces for street parking in our neighborhood. The sanitation trucks will only pick up what is in the carts. Tags for overflow garbage bags can be purchased from ARR. Untagged garbage bags will likely remain at the curbside.
Some important notes. The collection day slides from Friday to Saturday if there is a weekday holiday that week such as New Years, Christmas, or Thanksgiving. You can access the complete schedule on the ARR website. Should your carts not be picked up on your normal pickup day, you may report this on the ARR website or by calling 311.
Please note that the storage location for carts should follow the City of Austin rules. Storing or leaving carts in or too close to the roadway outside pick up times may result in a fine or penalty imposed by the city.
