It is always good to see a city that “gets it”!   As a part of Austin Resource Recovery’s Home Composting Rebate Program, residents can attend a “chicken keeping class,” buy a chicken coop, submit a rebate application online and receive a $75 check from the city.

They are promoting the program as a way to help reach the city’s Zero Waste goal by keeping food waste out of the landfill.

“Chickens recycle your food scraps while giving you fresh eggs and creating healthy soil,” the city said in an email.
