LUN Quarterly Residents Meeting
November 15, 2019
6:30 to 8:00 PM
It’s Time to Talk Trash!!
What happens to your trash after you set it out in your black, purple and green carts for city pick up? Why should you care? Is the recycling really reused, does the compost actually become soil and what happens to everything else?
Since China tightened its requirements for acceptance of sorted recycled material the recycling industry has suffered. It now costs more to recycle. Come learn how the City and County of Denver, with its growing population, is grappling with the challenges of finding and creating recycling markets. Learn how we can support best practices and be part of the solution. What new policies are being considered to advance Denver’s sustainability goals? What programs and policies have been effective for other municipalities?
Megan Lane, Recycling Program Administrator, City and County of Denver, is a seasoned recycling program administrator. She is passionate and knowledgeable about Trash and wants all Denver residents to understand and support sustainability in their daily lives.
The meeting will also feature a community resource officer from Denver Police District 3 to respond to residents’ concerns about crime and to provide suggestions about crime prevention as we move into the holidays.
