Every year Denver residents throw out tons of food and yard waste that could have been turned into beneficial compost. There are now several ways you can not only help reduce the organic waste from your household, but reap the benefits as well.
Denver Composts is a fee-based service paid for by the resident at the rate of $29.25 each quarter (every 3 months). Be advised, this service is not seasonal. If you want to cancel service, contact Solid Waste Management prior to the beginning of the next quarter to avoid being charged for future quarters. See "Compost Collection Frequently Asked Questions" for details.
Bags of Denver’s Own EcoGro™ Compost are now available at neighborhood Ace Hardware stores!
Help close the compost loop and put important organic material from the Denver Composts program back into Denver’s soil.
