Smithville Recycling Center – What you can and can’t drop off!

Today was my day to recycle. Out in the county here in Bastrop we don’t have regular recyle pick up so I have a system in my garage where I sort and store items to recycle and I drive in to Smithville’s recycleing center about once a month. Here is a pictorial overview of the things you can and can’t drop off there. Today I took in my aluminum cans, cardboard, and my #1 and #2 plastics!

Images of Smithville Texas

Here are a couple of photos I took while I was out working in the Smithville area. Smithville is a great little town located Southeast of Austin about 38 miles, just a few minutes past Bastrop on Hwy 71. It is a quaint town and has lots to offer from a historic downtown and residential district, parks for dogs and kids with skateboards, shopping on Main Street for Antiques and Art ( Smithville is becoming an Artists haven!), the Colorado River, and so much more!

Smithville has a Bark Park!

This weekend I took my dog Edsel with me to change out some real estate signs and put out some flyers and we made a slight detour in to Smithville to see the new Bark Park. We have been to the Bark Parks in Bastrop and the one on Riverside in Central Austin and enjoyed them both. Smithville has done a great job and their Bark Park is really nice and user friendly!

The Smithville Bark Park is located across the street from the Skate Park and right behind the community center is has a section for small dogs and larger dogs. There is an agility course in each section as well as nice water and “poop” stations. Young trees have been planted which will provide lovely shade for the summer months and there is a picnic bench with umbrella too!

My husband and I have had quite a few dogs over the years that have always been a part of our family! There are benefits as well as challenges in dog ownership! I know many of you dog owners understand what I mean! If you are looking to Buy or Sell real estate as a dog owner and want to work with a Realtor who understands please contact me, I would love to help you!

Take a peek at this short video I prepared and see how nice the Smithville Bark Park is!
