Welcome to Sustainable Broomfield, a citizen-led group!
Our vision is to bring together residents, local governments, organizations, and businesses to transform Broomfield into a model for individual and community sustainability.
Our mission is to accelerate the integration of environmentally sustainable lifestyles in our community. We will achieve this by providing residents with
-Practical and convenient resources
-Opportunities to advocate for sustainable public policy
We meet monthly and all meetings are open to the public. Contact us at email@example.com
Advocacy is a big part of Sustainable Broomfield. We encourage residents to communicate with the City of Broomfield on how they would like to see Broomfield become more sustainable.
We’ve done the work to find local and national resources on composting, recycling and so much more. Find a great list of resources on our Resources page.
Sustainable Broomfield is committed to holding educational talks, classes and events on sustainable topics. Check our Education page to find out about upcoming opportunities.
Monday, December 28, 6:30-8pm
We invite you to join us virtually for our monthly Sustainable Broomfield meeting! We are excited to welcome two great speakers. The first is Alyssa Vogan, the Executive Director of the Sustainable Neighborhood Network. Second, we will have Anne Kolesnikoff, an Associate Program Manager with the Colorado Energy Office and the RENU Loan Program.
Sustainable Neighborhood Network: Intended to encourage direct citizen action, the Sustainable Neighborhood Program provides support to neighborhoods in order to assist citizens in enhancing neighborhood sustainability and reducing the environmental footprint of residents. Neighborhoods in the certification program earn credits for participation and for achieving project goals.
RENU Loan program: A statewide residential loan program sponsored by the Colorado Energy Office in partnership with Elevations Credit Union and Clean Energy Credit Union. It makes home energy upgrades easy and affordable by offering low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements.
2021: What projects should we work on? Let us know at the meeting!
Here is the link to join the meeting on Monday. Feel free to email us at SustainableBroomfield@gmail.com with any questions.
Scraps Curbside Composting
Scraps is a curbside composting service that is available throughout the Denver metro area, and is looking to expand its services to Broomfield starting with the Broadlands and McKay Landing neighborhoods!
This is an exciting opportunity to bring composting to your local community, and be one of the first neighborhoods to have Scraps service.
Composting with Scraps is easy! You just leave your compostables on the curb in the bin they provide, and they pick it up each week and take it to be composted. That’s it!
Scraps does this weekly pickup for only $25 a month, which allows you to divert more organic waste from the landfill and make a real impact on the environment!

And if you don’t live in those neighborhoods, could you share this with someone who does? Thank you!
We need 100 people to sign up by December 31st to make this happen, so please spread the word!
