what should i use inquire boulder to report?

The Universal Zero Waste Ordinance (UZWO) requires property owners provide adequate composting, recycling and trash service to their tenants and occupants (BRC 1981 6-3-13). In addition, businesses must separate recyclables and compostables from the trash; provide properly placed containers and signs to facilitate the collection of recyclables and compostables (BRC 1981 6-3-14).

The Inquire Boulder form can be used to report:

  • A house, apartment building, HOA or condo complex without composting, recycling and/or trash service
  • A business or commercial property owner that doesn't offer composting, recycling and/or trash service
  • A business with incorrect or missing composting and/or recycling signs and/or bins
The form can be accessed from the main Inquire Boulder landing page, under the "Composting, Recycling and Waste” topic.
