HB22-1355 & HB22-1159 Signed by Governor Jared Polis in Evergreen, CO on June 3rd, 2022

With the sun shining on a beautiful lake in Evergreen Colorado, a crowd of legislators, citizens, organizations and businesses watched Governor Polis sign HB22-1355 & HB22-1159 into law. These policies represent transformative change for Colorado and will set a model for other states to follow.  The coalition of national and state businesses, local governments, environmental advocates, recyclers, and Recycle Colorado members joined the bill's sponsors in celebrating. As Representative Cutter and Senator Priola expressed how excited they were to bring free recycling to all Coloradans while improving the availability of materials for our local manufacturers, the moment was punctuated with the brief appearance of a bald eagle which seemed to be the perfect touch. Additionally, First Gentlemen Reis recognized each and every one of the K-12 students who won the Recycle Colorado poster contest. Those who could attend were excited to be apart of this momentous occasion and meet some of our legislators.

Recycle Colorado is especially grateful to our partners at EcoCycle, Swire Coco-Cola, and the countless other members who worked so hard to get this legislation on the books. Thank you!

Job Well-Done Recycle Colorado!

With Rep. Cutter's results, winners were selected, and invited to join her, the Recycle Colorado team, the First Gentlemen, and Governor Jared Polis at the Bill Signing for HB22-1355 and HB22-1159 in Evergreen, CO on June 3rd.

Meet your New Recycle Colorado Executive Director

"It is an honor and the culmination of my professional career to be working with people across the state of Colorado to improve our systems for waste reduction, diversion, and recovery. Whether the work is transforming discarded products into new items, composting food and organics for healthier soil, or incorporating used materials into new buildings, I am excited to learn more about the many ways our members are driving Colorado to become a leader in material recovery. My new role grants me the opportunity to discover the nexus between citizens, businesses, governments, and other non-profits who recognize the opportunities and benefits of moving towards a circular economy. I welcome and encourage all the members to reach out to me with ideas, information, and questions" - Liz Chapman
