Organic Compost Facility Tour @ City Hall
Oct 10 @ 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Compost facilityAs part of the City’s waste diversion goals, we transport recyclables and yard waste to regional facilities. Join us on an upcoming tour of the organic compost facility on October 10.

In this behind-the-scenes tour on October 10, you will see how your food and yard waste is processed into a valuable soil amendment. The City’s waste contractor, Alpine Waste and Recycling, operates a Class II compost processing facility at its East Regional Landfill campus, where it actively turns Golden’s collected compostable material into nutrient rich and valuable compost for sale to the landscaping and agricultural industries.

How to Participate
Participants should plan to meet at City Hall (911 10th St, Golden) at 1:30 p.m. Transportation to the facility will be provided and it is about an hour drive. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather as the tour is outside. Expect the tour to last an hour. The tour will return to Golden around 6 p.m. Space is limited, so sign up today by emailing goldensustainabilty@cityofgolden.net.
