Composting Guidelines Have Changed for Colorado Front Range Communities

Compost haulers and municipalities all along the Front Range of Colorado are working with regional compost manufacturer A1 Organics to create a high-quality, CLEAN finished compost product made from materials generated from municipal compost collections. The goal is to keep food scraps and yard & plant trimmings out of the landfill to prevent harmful methane emissions while creating marketable compost. This soil amendment will help Colorado farms and landscapes build healthy soils that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reduce water and chemical use, and grow nutritious foods.

Colorado's Youth Dig into their Creativity to Create Compost Art

Recycle Colorado's 2023 Poster Contest Winners Announced!

The 16th Annual Recycle Colorado Poster Contest was very successful! This years theme was "Colorado Loves Clean Compost which asked students to help us illustrate why composting is important to our state and the people who live in it. We received over 160 poster submissions from 24 different school across the state. We love to see the creativity the kids bring each year, whether its from our up and coming digital graphic designers, or classic marker, paint and crayon artists, to the realists who used compostable and non-compostable items to demonstrate what they have learned.
