Com­mis­sion­ers agreed to spend up to $66,900 to ex­pand re­cy­cling to many county of­fices out­side of down­town Austin, which lack on­site re­cy­cling or only re­cy­cle pa­per.

County staffers are rec­om­mend­ing county com­mis­sion­ers hire a ven­dor to pick up re­cy­cling at 26 of­fices, in­clud­ing the jail in Del Valle, the Ex­po­si­tion Cen­ter and small satel­lite of­fices.

A new con­tract for sin­glestream re­cy­cling – which ac­cepts plas­tics, glass and alu­minum, too – would cost up to $66,900, ac­cord­ing to a county es­ti­mate. The county will also have sin­gle stream re­cy­cling at its down­town of­fices, done for free by the Texas Fa­cil­i­ties Com­mis­sion.
