“Where Communication and Commitment Come Together”

What Is the New Austin, TX, Composting Requirement?

Austin, TX requires commercial composting collections at all multi-family and apartment properties as of October 1, 2024. All multifamily properties housing five or more dwelling units must provide their residents and employees access to commercial composting services. It is helpful to note that many of the requirements for composting meet the current multi-family recycling requirements. 

Included property types: 

  • Apartments
  • Condominiums
  • Dorms
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Nursing homes

All of these multifamily properties are now required to accept materials for composting such as food scraps, food-soiled paper products, and other BMI-certified composting products.

At Community Concierge Services, we offer valet composting services in Austin, TX, to help your facility seamlessly meet Austin’s composting mandates. 

Additional Composting Requirements in Austin, TX

Several measures must be taken to properly adhere to the new Austin, TX composting requirement. All multi-family properties must:

  • Offer composting capacity equal to one gallon per unit
  • Calculate capacity needs by utilizing the Multifamily Composting Calculator
  • Allow enough capacity and locations for residents to avoid composting overflow
  • Ensure composting is collected from the property weekly at least, and that the collection is taken to a composting facility 
  • Work with a chosen composting hauler to determine appropriate sizes and amounts of composting bins for the property

Providing Appropriate Composting Access, Education, and Signage

To ensure that composting happens as efficiently as possible, all multi-family properties should first provide the proper education for their residents. Education resources should include materials on what can be composted, reducing the risks of composting contamination, and understanding where they can compost on the property. 

If landfill trash and recycling containers are provided in commonly used areas of multi-family properties, composting containers must be located in the same space. These containers or bins must be grouped and labeled in at least two languages such as English and Spanish. These areas could include community lounges, cafeterias, gyms, etc. 

All composting bins must have signs on them that:

  • Are labeled with the type of waste stream
  • List out what materials are accepted in that bin
  • Have the above information provided in two or more languages
