CPN Achieves “Participating Neighborhood” Certification!
Many thanks to all of the Congress Park neighbors involved with projects aimed at helping us reduce our environmental footprint while also improving the sustainability of our neighborhood. Since Congress Park’s acceptance into Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhood Network in August 2016, neighbors have brainstormed, designed and initiated a variety of projects, from a Recycling Workshop to Alley-Cleanups, each moving us just a few steps closer towards certification.
Did you know, for example, that our recent Leaf Drop project diverted over 200 bags of leaves from the landfill AND earned our neighborhood 16 credits?!? All because a neighbor like you had a great idea. READ MORE

The CPN Green Team is working to help CPN get our leaves to the Denver Leaf Drop this year. The City program keeps leaves out of the landfill and instead converts them into compost. Help spread the word to your neighbors!
Bagged leaves can either be dropped off at a local volunteer’s house OR picked up by a volunteer (drop offs and contact info for pick up provided below). Bagged leaves will then be transported to a Denver Leaf Drop site, or added to local compost sites. Note: If you see leaves in the alley, ask your neighbor if they know about the CPNGT Leaf Drop; we’ll be happy to collect their leaves too.
The neighborhood program will run through the end of the Denver Leaf Drop, December 2 @ 2 PM. READ MORE
