Organic material like food, soiled paper and yard debris is the single largest item we throw away in our landfill, and it is 100% compostable. Participants in the compost collection program receive a large, green composting cart and weekly collection. Organic material such as yard debris, food and soiled paper are all accepted in the program. Only material inside the green cart can be collected.

The Compost Collection program is a fee-based program. Participants may make $29.25 Quarterly Payments (every three months) or one Annual Payment of $117.00 ($10 discount if the Annual Payment is prepaid by February 15th). The majority of participants choose to prepay for the year and pay online. It saves money, paper and time!
- Toss yard debris, food and non-recyclable paper into your green cart for Denver Recycles to collect.
- Denver Recycles delivers the organic material collected to a composting facility run by A1 Organics.
- Organic material goes through a natural process that transforms it into compost that is sold to farmers and landscapers.
