The city of Boulder making Big Changes

Zero Waste

This past June, it was a unanimous vote by the Boulder City Council to approve a Universal Zero Waste Ordinance. This ordinance ensures that there will be easy access for recycling and composting bins for everyone in the community. This marks a big change in the community, and Boulder is the first city in Colorado, and third in the nation that requires curbside recycling and composting bins for all local businesses, residential homes, condos, apartments, college institutions, everywhere throughout the city of Boulder community! This ordinance is a huge step towards reaching the city of Boulder’s goal of 85% waste diversion by 2025. Way to go Boulder City Council, and thank you to the Boulder community for assisting in making this change successful! More more information please visit
