Video: Recycling In Denver Apartments

Released in 2021

As Denver’s population soars, those moving to the city often assume it is “green” and “sustainable.” So it comes as a shock when newcomers find out their new home in an apartment or condominium building doesn’t offer recycling services.

Everyone should have access to residential recycling services and not be forced to go out of their way to do the right thing.
