About our Partners:
Waste No More
Waste No More (Measure 305) is a grassroots ballot initiative created to encourage Denverites to recycle more and throw away less. Last year, the Waste No More team drafted this policy and collected over 11,000 valid signatures in support of putting the measure on Denver’s 2022 General Election ballot. Ballot measure 305 will require all businesses — including apartment buildings, condos, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, and sporting arenas, and permitted events to provide compost and recycling pickup services alongside trash services. It will also require that all construction and demolition waste must be sustainably managed. These policies aim to boost recycling rates and dramatically decrease the amount of waste our city sends to the landfill.
Founded in 2018, Compost Colorado (CoCO) collects compost, “completes the loop”, and connects everyone to an accessible gateway towards a more sustainable and regenerative future. We aim to make composting mainstream and in the process support local, sustainable businesses and causes. We strive to make composting as easy, affordable, and available as possible – composting should be accessible and inclusive to all people. Signing up for Compost Colorado is an easy way we can all participate in reducing our green house gas footprint, reduce our reliance on landfills, and support our community.
