*Tool pickup and returns are available Tuesday through Friday from 9:30am-6:00pm and Saturdays from 8am-5pm.
We will contact you to confirm your appointment or reschedule. If you cannot make your specified appointment, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Compost, mulch, and soil are available by the cubic yard. No bagged product available. Visit the Organics by Gosh and Texas Disposal System websites for a full list of products.
After measuring your work/planting space, convert the measurement from cubic feet into cubic yards. A cubic yard of material is enough to fill the bed of a standard pickup truck. One delivery truck can accommodate up to 12 cubic yards of compost or soil or 15 cubic yards of mulch.
A minimum of two weeks notice is required for all compost, soil, and mulch requests. Keep Austin Beautiful typically awards 1-12 yards of product per group. Requests beyond 12 yards will be allocated based on need and availability.
Keep Austin Beautiful is proud to offer community groups access to quality tools without the expense in an easy-to-check-out system to facilitate community-driven beautification, improvement, and maintenance projects.
Keep Austin Beautiful is excited to know that your group is making efforts to keep Austin beautiful and encourages you to provide additional information related to the project so we can share in the good news. Keep Austin Beautiful is stocked to assist you with your beautification projects. These supplies are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please reserve your tools at least two weeks in advance. Be sure to return tools in a timely and responsible manner to ensure that tools are available for other projects and to maintain eligibility for future borrowing privileges. Please feel free to contact Keith Sears with questions at 512.391.0617 x702.
