Denver Composting & Recycling 101

Date & Time

Thursday February 9, 2023
4:15PM EDT / 3:15PM CDT / 2:15PM MDT / 1:15PM PDT



Beginning in January 2023, Denver will expand residential recycling and compost collection services to reduce the amount of trash Denver sends to the landfill and the production of harmful greenhouse gas emissions. (Waste in the landfill decomposes and generates methane — a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming and climate change.)

Under the city’s new expanded waste services, trash bins will now have a small charge; the smaller the trash bin you need, the smaller the fee. Recycle and compost bins are free AND recycling will be picked up every week! Now is the perfect time to put more into recycling and composting and get the smallest trash bin.

This presentation will get everyone acquainted with city-provided compost bins and explain more about what materials go in compost, recycle and trash.

We are striving to improve your experience on our site and would appreciate your feedback.
