In what is probably our most informative episode to date of the Dudes and Beer Podcast we continue with sustainability month as we welcome Memi Cardenas from Austin Resource Recovery and Michelle Hernandez, founder of the Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour to the studio to discuss the many programs available for recycling and reusing materials from Austin Resource Recovery as well as the new Backyard Chicken classes being offered as part of the City of Austin’s composting program. Keeping chickens is a great way to keep food waste out of the landfill. Chicken keeping and composting methods go hand-in-hand to keep food waste out of the landfill while creating healthy soil. Register to attend this free chicken keeping class and learn how! Austin residents who pay the Clean Community Fee on their utility bill qualify for a $75 rebate on a chicken coop or a home composting system. Simply attend a class, then apply!
