Here’s what you need to know to get caught up in Austin this week:
1. Airport adds recycling receptacle
In an effort to improve recycling, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Friday revealed a new “Pour it Out” receptacle that allows passengers to dump liquids from a bottle or container before placing it in recycling. Wet recyclables are considered contamination and go to the landfill instead. The airport hopes to eliminate 63 tons of waste in a year through this new program.
