Colorado recyclers plan for the future

After several years of global market challenges for recyclable commodities, such as China’s limits on importing recyclables, state legislators, with support from Recycle Colorado, took several tangible steps toward creating local markets to boost our local economies. The Front Range Waste Diversion program was created in 2019 and provides grants and technical assistance to Front Range communities to increase recycling, composting, and waste reduction. This year the legislature passed a bill to identify a structure and governing guidance for a Recycling End Market Development Center to support the development and expansion of end-market businesses in Colorado. Both of these programs enhance the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity program, a cornerstone grant program championed by Recycle Colorado in 2007.
