Waste Wise Denver 2019             

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.
