Greater Colorado Waste Diversion Baseline Assessment
The Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity program (RREO) contracted with Eco-Cycle to collect data on the current state of waste diversion programs and policies within municipalities and counties outside of Colorado’s Front Range in greater Colorado (Eastern Plains, Mountains, and Western Slope); this report complements the Front Range Waste Diversion (FRWD) Baseline Assessment dashboard. 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 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, which will assist CDPHE in assessing the effectiveness of RREO and manage future grant offerings throughout Colorado.
