Residents are invited to join the Boulder County Commissioners for a Town Hall on Thursday, May 30 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., to discuss composting in Boulder County. The Town Hall will take place at the Boulder Recycling Center (Education Room, 1901 63rd St., Boulder). 

Composting is important to Boulder County residents. This has been made clear since A1 Organics made changes to the materials they would accept at their facility last year. In response to community feedback and to support the county’s commitment to diverting waste from landfills, the county is exploring the viability of developing a local compost facility. Staff are examining potential locations and undertaking key assessments, which will help determine if a compost facility can move the county closer to its zero waste and climate action goals. 

“From previous efforts, we know that equitable community engagement must lead the way during this exploratory phase and all future project phases, “said project manager Meghan Wiebe. “We need conversations with our community to build long-term partnerships and to assist with providing direction for this project.” 

Join us to learn about composting in the county and have an opportunity to meet the commissioners and ask questions about this or other county issues.  Please note: there will not be a virtual option for this Town Hall, however, all residents who cannot attend are always welcome to email [email protected] with questions or to request materials shared at the event. Spanish translation will be available.
