Update for the Water Main Replacements on Colorado Boulevard, Montview Boulevard, East 17th Avenue

Denver Water is on schedule to finish the entire project by May 2018. They signed a one-month agreement with the city to store equipment and material for the project in the northeast parking lot of City Park just north of the ballfields. This allowed them to move a significant amount of equipment and material out of the residential side streets. They placed a permanent-temporary paving patch along Colorado Blvd. from Colfax Ave. to E. 17th Ave. on Saturday, February 3, during the day.

Glass Recycling in Denver: Keeping it Local

Ever wonder what becomes of your glass bottles and jars recycled through Denver’s recycling program? Denver Recycles is pleased to report that most (85%) of the glass bottles and jars recycled in Denver’s purple carts are turned into new glass bottles right here in Colorado. Denver Recycles like to call this bottle-to-bottle recycling, where a waste product can be turned back into its original form again (and again) through the recycling process. The other fifteen percent of glass collected in purple carts that is broken into pieces too small to be recycled into bottles is put to good use in other ways, such as being recycled into products like sandblasting abrasives and swimming pool filter media.

Resolve to Recycle More in 2018

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!

16th Street Mall Renovation

The City and County of Denver and the Regional Transportation District (RTD) are recommending a design for reconstruction of the 16th Street Mall that would expand sidewalks for walking, café seating and other activities, and move transit lanes to the center or offset-center of each block. These updates are designed to enhance the Mall experience for visitors while improving pedestrian safety and mobility on the city’s most transit-rich street. The proposed design would update and modernize the Mall’s deteriorating infrastructure, while honoring its iconic look. It is a modified version of one of the options released in October 2017, refined this winter based on input from downtown workers, Mall businesses and the broader community. There will be two Open House Public Meetings on March 8th from 12-1 and again from 5-6 at the RTD Board Room at 1660 Blake St. All are welcome to come and share their feedback on the proposal.
