America Recycles Week Underscores Victory of Denver’s “Waste No More” Initiative

America Recycles Week kicked off Monday and runs through November 18th. This year’s week of awareness comes on the heels of electoral wins for a nationwide smattering of ballot initiatives on recycling.

One of those successful initiatives was Denver’s Ordinance 306, also known as the “Waste No More” measure. It will expand curbside recycling and composting in Denver from single family residences to multifamily housing, apartment buildings and to businesses that produce food waste.

For more on the logistics of large-scale recycling, Shannon Young spoke with Keefe Harrison,  founder and CEO of The Recycling Partnership.
