Austin Resource Recovery Begins Storm Cleanup

AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY BEGINS STORM CLEAN UP

Call 3-1-1 to request pick up of large limbs from flood.

Austin Resource Recovery crews began responding to customer requests for storm debris removal early Monday. Customers should call 3-1-1 to request pick up of large limbs or household items damaged by flooding.

Customers should place items at the curb for collection. Items should be separated into three piles: 1. Brush and yard debris, 2. Bulk items such as furniture and 3. Household Hazardous Waste, such as paint, cleaners or pool chemicals.

Due to the significant impact from the weekend storms, it likely will take a few weeks for crews to complete the removal. Staff is working to complete the clean up as soon as possible, including seeking help from contractors. Staff is prioritizing areas that were impacted most heavily by the storms. Please, only request a pick up if your property was affected by the storms.
