The Universal Recycling Ordinance now affects all commercial and multi-family properties. This means that all businesses must have recycling services - a huge leap for getting Austin businesses to send their wastes to a higher and better use than the landfill. Learn about how the URO affects your business at one of these free trainings. The ARR team will even help you complete your required annual diversion report!
