Eco Depot

In: Stuff

7 Mar 2010

To the dump, to the dump, to the dump-dump-dump! Actually, this place is for recycling. In fact, it’s the only Austin recycling place west of I-35. You can recycle a whole carload of stuff for just two bucks. They take motor oil, tires, batteries, plastic bottles, glass, construction materials, even refrigerators. So what are you waiting for? Get your cans out here!

Hmm, push this over the cliff, or take it to Eco-Depot? Decisions...

it’s way easier to dump my used motor oil in the hole in my neighbors yard.

I stopped by the Eco Depot last month; it’s alot better than before. Nice new crew and way faster. brush drop off is cheap and fast. they take more recycling and all paper goods. he also sells soils and mulches (gardening stuff). After a runin with the old crew a few years ago i said i will never return. but after stopping in to drop off some brush i will be returning.

Ed. Reply: Nice to know! It’s great to have this resource in the neighborhood.

I’ve been bringing in recycling for years. Depending on who is working, the drive up there is either routine or a hassle. The charge is $2 + tax (used to be free!), and yellow bags for plastic film is sometimes 25 cents or 27 cents, depending on who is working. If you mention that your total on that isn’t the same as last time, and you have to dig around for another two pennies, they will act like you’re the one who can’t add. It’s no big deal, unless they also want to explain how to do the recycling and tell you no trash, etc., etc., and I already know all that, and I’ve been there for years. It’s irritating, and I might be too picky, but come on, people. I don’t have to recycle, and Eco Depot isn’t doing a service for me. Recycle the rubbish, not the lectures. Put up some signs instead of rehashing how to do the recycling, for Pete’s sake! If people are really throwing trash into the recycle bins, then go out there and offer to help people. Thanks.

There is tax on everything here, the 25 cent bag is 27 cents after tax. There are signs and they are routinely ignored, the aluminum can hopper had two signs that say no foil yet there is alway foil in the hopper, although that sign was laying on the ground about a week ago, guess the recycle experts got fed up with it. Employees are required to explain the guidelines each and every time you visit so it’s good to know that some of them are taking their job seriously.
