A new year is upon us, and as with tradition, it’s time to reflect, set goals, and make commitments for the new year. This year, Denver Recycles encourages Denverites to make their 2018 New Year’s resolution to reduce their trash by recycling and composting even more. Doing so not only keeps our community and environment clean, it also supports Denver’s recycling and composting goal of keeping 34% of our waste out of the landfill by 2020. Currently, Denver recycles and composts about 21% of its waste. Let’s do better in 2018!
Go green. Nearly 50% of Denver’s trash is compostable.
Sign up for Denver Composts: The Denver Composts program is now offered city-wide and is perfect for keeping food waste, yard debris and non-recyclable paper out of your trash (and out of the landfill). Compost collection service is provided by the City for a small fee, and the green cart is emptied weekly.
Go small. Reduce the size of your black trash cart.
Go purple. Nearly 25% of Denver’s trash is recyclable.
