Capturing Value in Colorado

Recycle Colorado is a 501(c)3, statewide nonprofit organization advancing circular economies & improving recycling across the state of Colorado. Our members share a vision to transform Colorado into a national leader in waste reduction, recovery, and diversion.

Our membership consists of 148 organizations and individuals who collaborate on problems, solutions, projects, and policy. With the support of our members, we are able to plan an annual Summit for Recycling conference, webinars, and many other educational events throughout the year. Colorado's recycling rate of 16% does not reflect the conservation mindset of its residents. We believe that communication between all aspects of the waste stream, haulers, producers, users, recyclers, composters, and cities and counties, is vital to achieving Colorado's diversion goals which preserve the state's beauty and resources. 

Colorado Gives Day

Support Recycle Colorado this Giving Season

Colorado Gives Day is the biggest giving movement in Colorado and one of the most successful giving events in the nation. Recycle Colorado's goal for 2023 is to have the biggest fundraising growth compared to last year. If we meet our goal, we could win an additional $5,000! 

Donate anywhere from five to five hundred dollars, Nov. 1 – Dec. 5 to help support Recycle Colorado and waste diversion in Colorado. That 16% diversion rate isn't going to increase itself!
