Composting in Carbondale

Dear Editor:

Did you know that the town of Carbondale is now accepting compostable products? You no longer have to drive to Glenwood Springs. Acceptable items include: cardboard (must be flat!), newspapers, magazines, waxy cereal boxes, phone books and compostable plastic products (look for PLA on the bottom).

Please drop off at the town public works yard at 0756 Highway 133 (behind Grand Junction Pipe, across from Dos Gringos). Hours: Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed on weekends and holidays. A Carbondale-based business, Cacaloco Compost, will take these products and let millions of microbes and bugs make reusable landscaping compost, reducing landfill usage and closing the waste loop. It is very important for a clean process that there is no plastic!

For more info, call public works at 963-1307 or contact Cacaloco at 379-2344 for general information about the composting process. Thanks to all of the community partners for making this happen!
