Overview and Frequently Asked Questions
The City and County of Denver can help your next event go green! Funding is available now to help public events switch from disposable to reusable cups. $2,500 per permitted event is available. This funding aims to reduce your event's waste and make your event more sustainable. Event planners and organizers will partner with a reuse service provider that provides cups, collection bins, delivery and pick-up logistics, and sanitizing services. Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Event planners and organizers looking to use reusable cups at their 2023 public events are eligible to apply. Events must occur within the City and County of Denver.
The application for 2023 is now closed.
Grants are paid out of the city's disposable bag fee fund and managed by the city's Certifiably Green Denver program.
