Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Program


About RREO

The Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Program provides funding that promotes economic development through the management of materials that would otherwise be landfilled. Funds are available to support recycling, composting, anaerobic digestion, source reduction, and beneficial use/reuse.

Grants and rebates are overseen by the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and its corresponding Assistance Committee.

Colorado NextCycle is a business incubator designed to improve the end markets for recovered commodities and organic materials in Colorado.

Currently, there are no open Requests for Applications (RFAs). Projects selected for funding from applications submitted in response to RFA #36128 will be communicated to awardees in mid-May 2022.
