Mission Statement

Recycle Colorado is committed to advancing infrastructure, end markets and state and local policies in waste reduction, recovery and diversion.

Organization History

Recycle Colorado, originally known as the Colorado Association for Recycling, was established in 1991. It remained relatively small until 1998, when it was infused by a group of recycling stakeholders from all around Colorado. Through successful fiscal management, coupled with strong volunteer involvement and commitment, the then 20-member association with an annual budget of $4,000 has developed into an effective organization with an annual budget of more than $200,000 and more than 230 members, including cities, counties, large and small businesses in commercial and industrial sectors, nonprofits, universities, and citizens. From an all-volunteer group and three-member board of directors, we've grown into a volunteer group with two paid staff and a 15-member board of directors.

In 2018, we changed our name to Recycle Colorado. One reason for our success is our leadership in advocating for recycling, educating professionals, collaborating with a diverse group of state and community organizations and paving the way for recycling and waste diversion in Colorado. The other reason for our success is the dedicated and passionate volunteers that give so much of their time, energy and money to support something they so strongly believe is essential to the continued vitality of Colorado.


"Wonderful staff, huge board of directors and incredible support around the state. What a journey the past 25 years has been!" -- Anita Comer, Waste-Not Recycling and founding member
