Recycle Colorado Lobby Day

Each year, Recycle Colorado staff, members, and volunteers head to the Colorado Capitol to meet with legislators to discuss legislation and recycling, composting and Zero Waste challenges with legislators. This is a way for anyone who wants to support new waste initiatives and meet with their Senator and Representative to have the opportunity to spend the day at the capitol. Materials and training is provided each year and newbies are encouraged to join. 

Voice your opinion during Recycle Colorado's 2024 Lobby Day!

Lobby Day is a time to meet legislators and make your voice heard at the capitol when it comes to waste reduction & diversion. Plus, it is fun! We provide you with all the information and training you need to meet with legislators that day. We will put everyone in small groups and each group will have an experienced leader.

What will we be lobbying on? 

  • Waste Tire Fee Reauthorization
  • Producer Responsibility for Paper & Packaging Products approval by the joint budget commission
  • CDPHE Colorado Circular Communities Enterprise Fund (C3E)
