SXSW Cleanup Project with Austin Resource Recovery

Sunday, March 19, 2017 -
9:30am to 1:30pm

Last year, Spring Festival Season generated almost 350,000 pounds of trash and recyclable material. The SXSW festival officially begins on March 10th and runs through March 19, 2017. In an effort to maintain and return the city back to its normal landscape, Austin Resource Recovery is seeking volunteers to help with litter maintenance and poster/flyer removal. Austin Resource Recovery and the Operations team will be leading this cleanup project on the very last Sunday and working towards our city's zero waste goal. All cleanup materials, snacks and water will be provided. Please come prepared to work outside and get dirty. This site is open to volunteers age 12 and up.

Please email:  to register as a volunteer. 


We will be servicing the Central Business District, between Cesar Chavez to 12th Street. Meetup location is under the bridge on 6th street and I-35.
