Durango, CODurango Herald
The city of Durango is digging into a citywide, curbside compost collection program as part of its environmental sustainability goals. Durango is trying to meet its benchmarks, set for 2030 and 2050, to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and increase use of renewable electricity. The city’s effort parallels similar goals around the world intended to combat climate change. A compost service for city residents is one step toward meeting those goals, according to the city.
