Denver Composts is redefining what was once waste. By signing up for compost collection you can reduce the amount of waste you throw away by as much as 50 to 75 percent. Denver Composts is a fee-based service that collects residentially generated organic material like yard debris, food scraps and non-recyclable paper.
Each compost program participant is supplied with a green cart that is collected weekly. The organic material collected is sent to a commercial facility where it gets turned into a high quality soil amendment known as compost. The number of participants is limited and only household within specific service areas are eligible for this program.

The Master Compost Training Programs offers Denver residents a unique opportunity to not only learn about composting and recycling topics, but also a great way to give back to our community. Through hands-on sessions, Master Composter program participants learn about a broad range of composting, recycling and resource conservation topics, and then share their newly acquired knowledge with the broader community through outreach events and by facilitating Learn to Compost classes.
Here’s a little more about how the program works:
