RREO Recycling Rebate: Now accepting Applications!

The purpose of this RREO rebate is to assist free public recycling drop-off sites by offsetting a portion of the transportation costs incurred by shipping recyclables to market or to a processing center. The rebate period covers costs incurred by drop-off sites from January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022.


Any local government, nonprofit, or for-profit entity within the State of Colorado that meets eligibility requirements may participate. To be eligible for the rebate, each public drop-off site must have collected a minimum of 10 tons of qualifying recyclables during the rebate period and must continue to be operational and open to the public today. Additional eligibility requirements are provided within the application and in the information packet linked below.

How is the rebate calculated?

For this round, one hundred (100) percent of the rebate will be dedicated to free public recycling drop-off sites. Sixty (60) percent of the rebate will be allocated based on tonnage recycled and miles traveled to bring recyclables to the nearest processing facility. Forty (40) percent will be allocated based on the number of eligible recycling drop-off sites available to the public.
