Alpine Waste & Recycling is proud offer the Denver Metro Area a composting program that complements our popular recycling programs. The program allows all types of businesses the opportunity to do their part to help keep a sustainable environment.

Small-Container Composting – Never in the Denver area had a program of this scale existed until July of 2006, when Alpine Waste & Recycling developed the collection program to allow everyone the opportunity to be environmentally conscious. The program is a cost-effective way for your business to promote a sustainable Colorado while keeping waste out of landfills. All accounts are serviced with dumpsters or toters similar to the containers* used for trash and recycling. We are very excited about this program and proud of our status as the leader in keeping Denver green.

* All sizes of front load, rear load containers and roll off containers, and compactors are available for compost service. Toter service is limited by weight to 68-gallon toters.
