Recycle Colorado welcomes new executive director

Recycle Colorado announces the selection of Barbara Bellanova as its new executive director. Bellanova will fill the full-time position effective January 13, 2020.

Bellanova brings more than 20 years of nonprofit leadership experience to Recycle Colorado. For the past 14 years as part of her private consulting practice, Bellanova has managed a diverse set of nonprofit organizations. Bellanova has a history of implementing innovative programs to increase an organization’s ability to be relevant to its constituency and to grow financially.

Bellanova has a bachelor’s degree in applied behavioral science and will complete her Master’s in public administration in 2020. She has lived for many years in Denver and in Summit County and most recently took a temporary break from winter by spending several months in Sarasota, Florida.

“Barbara comes to us with a solid background in nonprofit management, people development, and systems thinking. We believe she is the right person to continue the mission and great work Recycle Colorado has accomplished,” said Tim Dailey, board president of Recycle Colorado. Bellanova was selected after a regional search and selection process and received strong support from the Recycle Colorado board of directors.

Members can meet Recycle Colorado’s new executive director during Lobby Day, February 24, and at the 2019 Summit for Recycling conference June 14 through 16 in Denver, among other events. Amy Randell, who has served as Recycle Colorado’s interim executive director, will return to her role as associate executive director starting January 13.
