12 Gutter Bins installed around Denver!
Even though Denver appropriately prides itself on being a green city, the reality still exists that the South Platte River and its tributaries are a default trash receptacle for our city due to a number of source challenges, including the hundreds stormwater pipes that release into these urban waterways.
One way that The Water Connection is tackling this issue is coordinating the pilot program for Gutter Bins in Denver. These devices sit in storm drain inlets and catch trash and debris as it washes off sidewalks and streets, and keep it out of our urban waterways.
The Water Connection is pleased to announce that 12 Gutter Bins installed for a pilot program around the City! Six around Park Ave and I-25, five around Civic Center Park, and one in Larimer Square were installed on April 18th and April 19th. Thank you to Frog Creek Partners for creating and installing for such wonderful devices! This program, in partnership with the City and County of Denver, will help create cleaner urban waterways for everyone in Denver
