What does your organization do? 

Recycle Colorado is an action-oriented and member-driven organization that works on state and local policy, projects that are related to state infrastructure and business end markets for material recovery, reuse and manufacturing, and advancing all that is recycling.

What is your organization most focused on right now on? 

We are most focused on building circular economies in the Rocky Mountain region through end market research and development, promoting recycling through education, awareness and engagement campaigns, and policy, and being Colorado’s central spot for everyone – individuals to businesses to government entities – to collaborate and thrive. Our organization is an action-oriented and member-driven staple in Colorado that’s progressive and supports the ever changing landscape of the recycling industry.

In what ways could this community help you achieve your mission?

We are thrilled with The Alliance Center community and value everyone’s support. Partnership and tangible initiatives are what inspires us and recycling and business is something that unites us – we welcome collaboration at all levels. Please reach out at kristin@recyclecolorado.org!

What is unique about your organization that you could offer to the community? 

We are THE recycling organization in Colorado. Our Executive Director focuses on inclusivity, so she has a wealth of resources, strategic partnership opportunities, and expert guidance and education. There isn’t another nonprofit like Recycle Colorado here, that can seamlessly move within the unique realm of recycling.

What is your proudest achievement as an organization?

Most recently, supporting the passage of SB20-055 (Incentivize Development Recycling End Markets) – complete with a live stream of the Governor signing it! This was one of the few bills passed in 2020 and was concerning the expansion of market mechanisms for the further development of recycling. Gov. Polis and the First Gentleman will be making a cameo at our annual conference, too: Summit for Recycling – Building a Circular Economy in the Rockies.
