About Ecology Action
“Since its founding in 1969, Ecology Action has been committed to the mission of landfill diversion and zero waste awareness in Austin, Texas and the surrounding region.
Ecology Action envisions a world where landfills are no longer necessary. For almost 50 years we have been turning waste into resources, processing materials to their highest and best use.https://www.ecology-action.org/ecology-action
