Green Your Business
Join the Denver Recycles Action Network
The Denver Recycles Action Network is a volunteer program designed to be flexible and take advantage of each individual volunteer’s skills and connections within the Denver community. All we ask is that you commit to dedicating a minimum of 15 minutes a month to educating those around you about Denver Recycles and how they can reduce their waste. How you achieve that goal is up to you. Denver Recycles will assist in your volunteer efforts by providing you with the training, informational resources and staff support you need. We’ll communicate with you regularly about what special recycling events we have on the horizon and what results we are achieving together as an Action Network.
