EverGreen ZeroWaste is a locally-owned, family-operated waste diversion organization founded in 2010. We focus on curbside compost collections for homes, schools, HOAs and businesses serving customers from Aspen to Glenwood Springs and Vail to Rifle. We compliment this service by coordinating community zero waste events and educating our region about waste diversion opportunities. See our Recycling Guide page for a region-specific, bilingual waste sorting guide.

Over the years our efforts have been recognized  by awards such as Recycle Colorado’s 2019 “Recycler of the Year”, the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 “Business of the Year” and Carbondale Environmental Board’s 2019 “Dandelion Day Award.” We’ve also partnered with multiple municipalities and counties over the years to increase recycling and composting participation and to implement waste diversion programs. These efforts have been supported by multiple grants including awards from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Aspen Ski Company.
By keeping materials out of landfills we’re protecting our local lands, air and water. Composting and recycling , along with thoughtful purchasing, may be the easiest way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while resulting in helpful end products, such as nutrient-rich soil and manufactured materials containing post-consumer recycled content. If you’d like to learn more contact our staff and request a presentation at your school, business or HOA; you can also sign-up for our monthly e-newsletter.

– REAL WORLD IMPACT –

POUNDS OF COMPOSTABLES COLLECTED SO FAR THIS YEAR


Keeping compostable material out of the landfill produces a variety of environmental and social benefits. These include reduced greenhouse gas emissions, clean water and improved soil quality. Each year our waste diversion efforts conserve the equivalent of 65,239,867 gallons of gasoline or remove the annual emissions from 114,106 passenger vehicles.
