Denver Composts Now Accepting eCheck Payments


Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT), also known as eCheck payments, are secure and efficient transactions sent electronically to bank accounts within the United States. EFT payments eliminate the need to write checks and avoid postage costs. Compost service subscribers choosing this payment option should first contact their financial institution to confirm they offer EFT transactions and if there are any associated costs to the payee for this service. For Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Instructions check the back of your 2015 compost invoice or Click Here.

  • IMPORTANT: We ask subscribers that have previously set up payments to Denver Compost through their bank’s “Bill Pay” service to discontinue this payment procedure and use the eCheck payment method instead.
