Join the Chicken Keeping Community!
Register today for a FREE class about chicken keeping presented by the City of Austin
Keeping chickens is a great way to keep your food waste out of the landfill. Chickens can recycle your food scraps. Chicken keeping and composting methods go hand-in-hand to keep food waste out of the landfill while creating healthy soil.
This class is part of the City of Austin's Home Composting Rebate Program. Austin residents who pay the Clean Community Fee on their utility bill qualify for a $75 rebate on any new chicken coop or home composting system. Simply attend and then apply!

Composting is nature's way of recycling. Rather than sending your food scraps and lawn clippings to the landfill, you can turn them into a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants, garden, or lawn by using a home composting system.
