The Master Plan provides the City with a vision — and options for implementation — for Denver’s future collection, transfer and disposal of solid waste, recyclables and organics. The Plan also assesses what is required by Public Works’ Solid Waste Management section to achieve Denver’s waste management goal of a 30% reduction in landfill tons, using 2004 as the base year.
The Food Recovery Challenge is part of EPA's Sustainable Materials Management Program, which seeks to reduce the environmental impact of materials through their entire life cycle, including how they are extracted, manufactured, distributed, used, reused, recycled, and disposed. Through the Food Recovery Challenge, the EPA is partnering with organizations and businesses to prevent and reduce waste food. Challenge participants save money, help communities, and protect the environment by purchasing less, donating extra food, and composting. For more information on how you can reduce food waste visit EPA website Food Recovery Challenge.
