Greeley Seeks Resident Input on Future Waste Diversion Options
The City of Greeley is evaluating not only the amount and type of waste residents generate but also options for City Council to consider related to waste diversion, also known as recycling. The city received a Front Range Waste Diversion grant to facilitate the study.
Waste characterization examines waste types such as paper, food, and plastics that wind up in landfills. Waste diversion evaluates options to reduce the amount of waste in landfills through reducing, reusing, and recycling. The city understands the importance of sustainability and plans to use the study results and resident feedback to help city council review policy options around waste diversion.
Participants can win a $50 gift card by completing an online survey to share their thoughts on waste diversion. Visit SpeakUpGreeley.com/waste-diversion to take the survey before it closes on December 9.
Greeley's current waste diversion methods are curbside pick-up through private trash providers and drop-off recycling through community partnerships with Andersen’s Sales & Salvage, Inc., Shaefer Enterprises, Inc., and Crabtree Brewing, Co. Residents can drop off organic waste at the Greeley Organic Waste Center. Learn more about Greeley’s current recycling options at www.greeleygov.com/services/recycling.
