A1 Organics, which operates THE ONLY permitted large-scale compost manufacturing facility serving the Front Range community, has made changes to the materials they will accept for composting.
Due to the high levels of contamination in the compostables stream, they cannot sell their finished compost product made from community collection programs and are calling for a cleaner stream of organics (what you put into your compost cart).
The updated compost rules are simple!
Two categories ONLY:
Food Scraps: Produce, bread, bones, meat, cheese, eggshells, coffee grounds (no coffee filters), etc. REMOVE ALL produce decals, rubber bands, strings, twist-ties, and anything that is NOT food.
Yard & Plant Trimmings: Leaves, twigs, branches, flowers, grass, and yard trimmings.
