Recycling & Composting Awards

Every year, Recycle Colorado seeks nominations for our Annual Recycling & Composting Awards. These prestigious awards recognize governmental entities, individuals, companies, media and organizations for their excellence in recycling and composting. Award winners are honored at our annual Summit for Recycling Awards Gala. 

Award Winners receive a recycled award from TechWears and are recognized at the Awards Gala during Recycle Colorado's Summit for Recycling.
