Did you know?

Organic material such as leaves, branches, grass clippings and food scraps make up more than 50% of what Denver residents send to the landfill each year. Instead of trashing these valuable resources, sign up for a free hands-on composting class and learn how to turn these materials into compost in your own backyard. Utilizing finished compost around your home and garden provides many benefits to your soil, lawn, plants and to the environment!
