Materials Recovery Program Returns to ACL Music Festival 2019


After a successful pilot at ACL Fest 2018, Austin Materials Marketplace is teaming up with C3 Presents to continue the Materials Recovery Program as part of ACL Fest's broader sustainability efforts. We will be behind the scenes taking inventory of all available materials so that Marketplace users get priority post-fest... Last year, more than 3k lbs of materials were traded resulting in over $12k of economic benefit to local nonprofits including:

+ wood panels to Museum of Human Achievement
+ musical instruments to Kids in a New Groove and AISD schools
+ t-shirts to Austin Area Quilt Guild
+ bicycles to Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church

We will be sharing exclusive updates regarding available materials, pick-up times, and locations with users and partners on the Insider List this October.
