As a founding member and sponsor, in 2006 we helped shape the Sustainable Shopper's Ball, Austin's first green living fair. We have tabled and recycled at five Sustain-a-Balls, educating the public about our recycling centers and center tours, as well as tabling at a number of other community events. Every September, we provide recycling and education at the Renewable Energy Roundup in Fredericksburg. Additionally, we have two outstanding new employees, Karly Jo Dixon, and Scott Crow.
Ecology Action faces lots of challenges this year. We have been wrestling with how to meet increased use of our recycling centers in downtown Austin, Cedar Park and Bertram. We are gathering bids on rewiring the downtown center and adding a larger, faster cardboard bailer, a glass crusher, and possibly a paper compacter as well.
