Right now as many as 293 of Austin’s 300 parks have no recycling whatsoever. Most of our pools, almost all of our athletic fields and many others have only trash cans. Valuable recyclables are getting buried in area landfills and dumped on vulnerable Austin neighborhoods.
On June 14 the City Council will vote on a resolution to create a short-term task force to find the most cost-effective way to get recycling for every Austin park. We need you to take action right now so they will pass this resolution, listen to the task force, and spend this money on this important priority.
Send a quick message to Mayor Steve Adler, City Manager Spencer Cronk and your member of the City Council. Your voice makes a difference! Thank you and stay tuned for when we win!
