Denver is making some pretty lofty requests for the Democratic National Convention in an effort to make it “the greenest convention in the history of the planet” (Mayor Hickenlooper’s words). From the Wall Street Journal article, it sounds like it’s not a particularly easy thing to do, and some of the products being used contradict the green goals in one way as they meet them in others (e.g. biodegradable utensils shipped from Asia).
With all of this going on, I wonder why Denver still doesn’t provide its great recycling services to residential buildings with eight or more units? Apparently there is a pilot program underway, and recycling is available in select Denver District 10 buildings — check to see if yours is on the list (and thanks to Christopher for pointing this out to me). Note they don’t give end-dates, and this kicked off on Earth Day — not sure what the status is now, but I hope it goes well!
