The Lone Tree Sustainability Team was created by a dedicated group of citizens and businesses driven to make the world a better place for all.
We have 3 goals:
1. Education: creating opportunities for learning about sustainability and ideas to address it
2. Actions: individual and collective actions to address sustainability needs
3. Legacy: influencing and supporting long-term decisions that align with sustainable solutions

City Council Works To Reduce Litter

One major source of litter is unmaintained commercial dumpsters. Lone Tree City Council enacted a new ordinance to require dumpster providers to maintain containers with no defects or holes, and to be equipped with operable dumpster lids. The new ordinance took effect on  January 1, 2021.

Waste Connections Helping Us Learn

And Some Free Giveaways

Waste Connections, the trash and recycle partner for Lone Tree, attended our Fall Clean Up Event. They provided valuable information about how to properly recycle.

How To Recycle

It's Not As Easy As You Think

While it's easy to just pitch something we think is recycleable into the bin, it can actually do more harm than good if it's not recycleable. Putting in incorrect recycleable material can "pollute" the entire batch of material, making all of it unrecycleable. Please ensure you know the "Yes" and "No" of recycle.
