Downtown Recycling Center to Close to the Public on Sunday, September 13, 2015
Ecology Action of Texas will discontinue operations at its downtown recycling center, at 707 East 9th Street, on September 13, 2015, instead of the previously released date of September 30th. This decision was made by the Ecology Action Board of Directors under recommendation by the Ecology Action Staff to allow for ample to time vacate the 9th Street property by the lease termination date.
The recycling center, established in the mid 1990s, is a familiar presence along the southbound frontage road, offering Austin citizens and businesses an option for recycling that is accessible twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The Ecology Action recycling center currently diverts over 100 tons of recyclable material from area landfills each month.

Ecology Action, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, has played a foundational role in building an eco-aware culture throughout Central Texas, establishing Austin’s first recycling program nearly fifty years ago. Since its founding in 1969, Ecology Action has been and will continue to remain an active and innovative contributor to environmental education, protection, and community building.
