Zero Waste Advisory Commission Ken Snipes Director Austin Resource Recovery To: From: Date: Subject: August 10th, 2022 Director’s Monthly Report to the Zero Waste Advisory Commission Potential Transfer Station Update In late June, Austin Resource Recovery (ARR) sent three employees, Donald Hardee, ARR Division Manager, Brent Paige, Financial Manager II, and Richard McHale, Deputy Director, to research and identify best practices for the construction and operation of transfer stations in Seattle and the Los Angeles areas. Staff visited the Seattle North, Seattle South, Factoria, Bow Lake, and Puente Hills facilities. In addition to touring the facilities, staff had the opportunity to sit down with staff from the other entities to discuss topics such as facility layouts, safety, costs, equipment selection, challenges, and opportunities. Staff will apply what they have learned to help in identifying potential locations and in the development of a facility to accept materials that will lower the department’s carbon footprint associated with long hauls to disposal sites. The department continues to search for property to site such a facility that will be able to handle multiple material streams and provide an educational space to view the operations while learning about the operations and how materials are recycled. Future Residential Household Waste Pilot The Household Hazardous Waste Program is working with ARR’s Strategic Initiatives Division and Quality Assurance Division on the preliminary details of a pilot for residential HHW collection. The pilot will take place in two North Austin districts and last approximately one year. The plan is to begin the pilot in September in District 4 and District 10. The data from this pilot will be used to determine the feasibility of a citywide residential collection program. Collections Fleet Self-contained Air Conditioning Units Purchase On 29 July 2022, ARR executed a contract with Lonestar Forklifts via a Certificate of Exemption for Public Health and Safety for the purchase of 50 self-contained air conditioning units. This request was due to the extremely hot temperatures the region is experiencing in which, two ARR employees have suffered heat illness emergencies that required emergency medical treatment. This weather event is unusual and surpassed the extreme heat wave of 2011 with no end in sight. On 16 June 2022, 20% of ARR’s collection fleet had inoperable air conditioning units. ARR does not have enough excess fleet to rotate vehicles to ensure that its employees can utilize an air-conditioned vehicle. As of 28 …

Staff has compiled ordinance information as well as case numbers and other pertinent information for all potential annexations. Annexation information, including an interactive map, is available at: https://austintexas.gov/page/annexation. As of the date of this memo, five annexations have been completed in 2022. A sixth is scheduled for Council consideration on 9/1/2022, and a seventh has been indefinitely postponed. In relation to single member districts: • • three of the annexations were full purpose annexations of limited purpose jurisdiction areas and therefore do not require any changes to the single member districts map because all limited purpose jurisdiction areas were assigned Council Districts when the ICRC adopted the revised District map in October, 2021; two of the annexations were full purpose annexations of Extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) and therefore are brought to the ICRC for recommended District assignments; and • one annexation is a limited purpose annexation of ETJ and will also need to be assigned a District by the ICRC. Staff has provided District recommendations for each of the annexation areas. One annexation planned at the time of this memo has been scheduled for Council consideration on September 1, 2022. The ICRC may recommend a District for this annexation prospectively at its discretion. The City of Austin is committed to compliance with the American with Disabilities Act and will provide reasonable modifications and equal access to communications upon request.
