No. The city of Durango and Table to Farm Compost are currently partnering on outreach and education to encourage more residents and businesses to sign up for compost collection voluntarily.
In the coming years, the city will be evaluating the feasibility of expanding city-wide food waste diversion and composting services. Landfills are the third-largest source of human caused methane emissions and food waste makes up approximately 20% of residential waste in Durango. Reducing waste and increasing composting will be critical to achieving the city's adopted sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions goals.
