Recycle on 16th Street

16th Street Mall Downtown has just launched a recycling program. About time people – I was sort of surprised to find out that we didn’t have the program running before. Either way, look for bright yellow containers for your glass, plastic and newspaper between Larimar and Cleveland. (side thought: why doesn’t Union station to Market get recycle containers?)

Other Downtown Green accomplishments:

    90 new trees have been planted throughout Downtown.
    100 flower planters have been placed along Downtown streets.
    Coordination with RTD helped to plant 23 new trees on the 16th St. Mall in early summer 2007.
    Purchase of energy-efficient LED holiday lights.

More Greater Denver Green Initiative info at Greenprint Denver. My favorite: the one million trees initiative (aka mile high millions). Register your tree online or help plant trees!
