A Note From Austin Resource Recovery
My name is Scott Johnson. I work for Austin Resource Recovery at the city Recycling and ReUse Drop-Off Center. I have been tasked with organizing a program that collects and distributes lawn and gardening materials to local citizens.
I am sending out this email to let everyone know that I have been working very hard on the Gardening ReUse program. This program collects lawn and garden supplies and makes them available to community / home gardeners, schools, churches, and basically anyone who is involved in gardening in their community.
Please send out this email and/or my contact information to anyone that you might know that could benefit from this program. I am trying and get as many people involved in the program as I can.
Here is a list of some of the items that I am setting aside for people who want to take advantage of the program. It is by no means complete. Please note that not all materials will be available on all days. I am dependent on what comes into my
There's a chart of 20 different items, mostly organicsoil amendments and then spray attachments. It isn't copying when I try to carry it here.
Additionally, the city has Wood Mulch available every day that we are open. It is completely self-serve, so make sure to bring a truck, bags, containers, pitchforks, shovels, etc.
Contact me to make an appointment to come shop at 512-974-4308 and at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am available Tuesday-Friday 9:30-4:30 and Saturdays 7:30-9:30.

Chances are there will be some good bargains sometimes. Gardening season is just beginning so there is probably a little less competition at the moment.
