In 2021, the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) program and the Front Range Waste Diversion (FRWD) program contracted with Colorado recycling nonprofit Eco-Cycle to collect data on the current state of waste diversion programs and policies within municipalities and counties in Colorado. This work resulted in two dashboards; the Greater Colorado waste diversion baseline assessment dashboard, which includes data from the Eastern Plains, Mountains, and Western Slope regions, and the Front Range waste diversion baseline assessment dashboard, which includes data for the thirteen Front Range counties. The data collected includes the number of residents who have access to services like curbside recycling for a fee; universal, bundled, or pay-as-you-throw (PAYT); yard waste diversion, and curbside organics collection. The data also establishes a baseline number for municipalities that have already adopted a waste reduction and diversion plan and municipalities who may require additional assistance to establish a program.
