Recycling Incentives

Incentives for Purchasing and Using Recycled Waste Tire Products in Public Projects

 

The Colorado General Assembly passed legislation in 2010 (HB 10-1018), C.R.S. 25-17-202.6, concerning tire recycling and re-use programs. Specifically, the legislation provides incentives for state agencies and local governments to purchase products made from recycled or reused waste tire material in their public projects.

The purpose of this program is to encourage the beneficial reuse and recycling of Colorado waste tires. The legislation authorizes funds be made available to counties, municipalities, special districts (including school districts), and state agencies, as a financial incentive to purchase products containing recycled or reused Colorado waste tires on a reimbursement basis.
