Moving Mountains of Materials - 2021 Colorado Recycling Awards

The strength of the recycling industry grows from the grassroots up, from volunteers and entrepreneurs to the communities and industries that build out our infrastructure. Recycle Colorado is proud to celebrate this year’s 2021 Recycling Award recipients, who are recognized for their ability to adapt during a challenging year and also for keeping on as they always have, with diligence, creativity and perseverance.

“The value of recycling is being realized as a social, environmental, and economic necessity now,” shared Kristin Kim, Executive Director of Recycle Colorado.

Recycling goes beyond the basics of protecting and conserving natural resources. And the accomplishments of the honorees contribute to Colorado’s economic security, mitigate climate change, and support local supply chains.

The Honorees:

Lisa Skumatz, principal of Skumatz Economic Research Associates and board member of Recycle Colorado, who presented the awards during the virtual ceremony June 16 said Coloradans “should look to these programs and individuals as models of what can be achieved in this great state.” Winners received a custom upcycled award made from old circuit boards that is produced by TechWears.
