Denver Recycles encourages environmentally responsible purchasing and disposal habits in your homes, at work and at school in an effort to reduce the volume and toxicity of our waste stream. Denver Recycles collects recycling every other week from Denver residents at no additional cost to the resident. If you are a Solid Waste Management customer and are not presently recycling, please call 3-1-1 to register or you can sign up on-line.

Because more than 20 percent of our residential waste stream is made up of yard trimmings and leaves, Denver Recycles also sponsors several yard-waste reduction and reuse programs to keep these materials out of our landfills and recycle them into beneficial products. Current recorded information is available by calling our special events line at 720-865-6810. These programs include: Backyard Composting, LeafDrop, Treecycle, and the Spring Compost Sale & Mulch Giveaway Event.
