The City of Austin’s class is a part of Austin Resource Recovery’s composting rebate program, which challenges Austinites to complete a free composting class, downsize to a 32-gallon trash cart and purchase a home composting system. Austin Resource Recovery curbside customers who do these three things are eligible for a rebate of 75 percent off the cost of their new home composting system. The counter top bin is great for produce scraps and healthy gardens!
