Compost | Recycling

If you have access to the City's composting program (if you live in a single family home or a small multiple dwelling unit), sign up is easy.  There is a nominal fee of $107.00 (save $10) if you pay annually or $29.25 per quarter. The City gives you a green cart and you can put all your composting material in (kitchen waste, used tissues, paper plates, napkins, paper towels and organic yard waste) and the City picks it up weekly.

Sign up here.

If you don't have access to the City's program, see Denver Compost Collective information on this page.

“Denver Compost Collective is a small company with a reverence for the wholeness of life. We intend to address some of the big problems of our time: climate change, inequality, poverty, and alienation from nature and each other, by engaging with our neighbors right here in Denver in the practices of composting, community farming, and sharing our collective resources. And yes, we intend to make a living by playing in the dirt.

Our mission is to become a worker-owned cooperative, dedicated to engaging whole communities in the liberating practices of composting, community self-reliance, stewardship of the Earth, and sharing the fruits of our labor.”

Eviction Legal Defense Fund

Last year, an eviction legal defense pilot aimed at helping Denver residents stay in their homes opened its doors. The free legal help, provided by Colorado Legal Services and other legal providers has two goals – help those facing eviction stay housed or reduce the barriers for evicted tenants to find future housing.

Tenants in Denver who have been served with a notice, have received court papers or have a housing problem, should contact Colorado Legal Services right away to be screened for services. Colorado Legal Services will generally be able to serve households earning up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level based on their family size, as well as older adults (age 65+) of any income.

If you have an issue with a short-term rental operation in your neighborhood, you can file a complaint by calling 311. The 311 Call Center is available Monday-Friday 7am-7pm at 720-913-1311.
