Denver Composting Petition

Denver Recycles' compost pilot program has been a wonderful success: in addition to hundreds of residents, over 20 schools & city buildings are now composting thousands of pounds of organic waste every day.

This has helped greatly reduce the amount of garbage we send to the landfill. Join us in telling the City Council that we love this program, and want to see it expanded to the rest of Denver!



One day, our children will ask:
"What's a trash can?"

Green Up Our Schools is a grant program that supports elementary school waste reduction & recycling programs.

Schools accepted into the program receive $2,000 over 3 years and personalized assistance achieving their goals.




The best part of the program is the accountability of the monthly phone calls. There's joint problem solving, sharing of information, relationship building -- the calls are the hallmark of the program.
