Waste Reduction

Recycling and Composting

DPS is an active partner with the City and County of Denver to educate our students on proper recycling and composting in the City. The majority of our schools are actively recycling and we are adding composting to new schools every semester. Currently we have 50 buildings that are actively composting in the cafeteria to reduce our waste, return nutrients to the soil to grow healthier plants, fruits and vegetables and to fight climate change. If you are interested in improving recycling in your school or adding composting please contact us at
