Want to particapate in the City's composting program?  Denver is taking recycling to the next level by testing composting collection through a new pilot program. Organic materials like food, soiled paper and yard debris are the largest items we throw away in our landfill, and it is 100% compostable.  Denver’s Composting Collection Pilot Program Accepts Food, Soiled Paper and Yard Debris! Denver residents have proven they are great recyclers.

The composting collection program accepts organic material such as yard debris, food and soiled paper. The programs strictly prohibits any type of plastic, glass or metal as these are contaminants that prohibit the ability to compost the organic material. Unfortunately the program is not available to all areas at this time.
