    Do You Need a Dumpster Permit in Austin?

    Austin residents only require applying for a permit if the placement of the dumpster interferes with public right of way traffic. The Austin Transportation Department must authorize use of the city’s right of way, which includes parking lanes, parking meters, traffic lanes, and sidewalks.

    For dumpster placement in a right of way, you need a Temporary Use of Right of Way permit, and it can be submitted through Right of Way Management Network. You will also need the dumpster site approved by a Right of Way inspector.

    Where Should You Take Your Recycling in Austin?

    To reduce the amount of solid waste thrown in your rental dumpster, consider joining Austin’s residential recycling program. Curbside collection is available for all residents who live in a single-family home and multi-family housing units with four or fewer tenants.

    For those who live in an apartment, condo, townhome or other facility with more than four units, you can use a private hauler. Please visit here for a list of city-approved licensed haulers.

    Residential curbside services include trash and yard trimmings picked up weekly, recycling, clothing, and housewares are collected every other week, and large brush items and bulk items are picked up twice a year. If you would like to see your schedule, just search your address at this link.

    Before you recycle rinse food off recyclable items, dry paper before throwing it in the blue bin, crush any recyclable items like milk cartons, cans and bottles, flatten any cardboard or food boxes and remove any metal components from paper products, like the metal spiral found on notebooks, or from plastic items.
