Every three years, Boulder updates its energy codes. This time around, the city might help push the envelope in Colorado by banning natural gas hookups in new buildings.

Environmental advocates nationwide have pushed for gas hookup bans as crucial in reducing cities’ dependence on fossil fuels and achieving climate emissions goals. And many cities — and some states — are well ahead of Boulder.

While the Universal Zero Waste Ordinance (UZWO) has not been repealed, due to the changes in what can and cannot be composted across the Front Range, enforcement has been paused. Official messaging from Boulder’s City Attorney is:
The city recognizes that changes in accepted materials for compost collection by A1 Organics are causing problems and questions related to compliance with the existing Universal Zero Waste Ordinance requirements outlined in Boulder Revised Code 6-3-13, 6-3-14, and 6-3-15. The City of Boulder is currently collaborating with regional partners on potential solutions. For now, the city will pause enforcement of compost requirements in these code sections until further notice. Commercial and multifamily complex properties, along with special events, will not be penalized for discontinuing compost collection services.

Those that wish to continue collecting materials for composting are encouraged to do so, if able to strictly adhere to the new guidelines.
