CAP Waste Sector Climate Win – The city has a goal to divert 85% of our waste stream through composting and recycling by 2050, with an interim goal of 46% by 2030. Approximately 30% of the current waste is from food – so composting will be key to meeting that goal.
Steamboat Springs, in conjunction with Cowgirl Composting and Twin Enviro Services, is launching a new eco-initiative by offering a limited number of free kitchen composting pails to residents as an incentive to compost at home.
“As we start a new season, it’s also a great time to make a change to our routines or start a new home tradition like composting,” said Community Recycling Coordinator Alicia Archibald in a news release. “Composting is a simple action you can take to reduce greenhouse gasses, support climate action, and reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, you might even reduce food costs for you and your family!”
