APPLICATION CYCLE NOW CLOSED. CYCLE WILL RESUME IN AUGUST 2013.
Rebate applications will once again be available in August 2013 for the rebate period January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013. Please revisit this webpage to access the next cycle's rebate application.
Our program no longer offers rebates for container-to-container glass recycling, effective January 1, 2013. On the application to be released August 1, 2013, 100% of the available funding set aside for the rebate program will be directed to free public recycling drop-off sites.
Additionally, the formula used to calculate the public recycling drop-off site rebate will change. The modified formula will take into account the tonnage of each material collected and the miles each material must travel from the drop-off center to the processing center and/or from a processing center to a subsequent processing center. Processing centers will be eligible for a rebate if a public drop-off center is maintained on-site and no more than 8,000 tons of recyclables are processed and sorted annually. Also, glass may be included in the list of eligible materials collected, but only if the glass is transported to a processing center, not a paying end-user (i.e. – Rocky Mountain Bottle Company). For the purposes of the rebate program, only "conventional recyclables" are eligible and are defined as beverage containers, cardboard, newspaper, office paper, plastics #1 – #7, etc.
Details regarding anticipated changes to the rebate program will be forthcoming.
