Denver's compost guidelines have changed

Effective April 1, ONLY food scraps and yard & plant trimmings will be accepted in residential and commercial compost collection. Compostable service ware, paper products, and compostable bags larger than 3 gallons are NO LONGER accepted in the compost stream.
