The department is no longer accepting recycling rebate applications for the current period. The next application will be offered in August 2014. It is anticipated that the rebate program will continue to focus on free public recycling drop-off sites.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, working through its Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Assistance Committee to the board, requests applications for a monetary rebate from the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund. The intent of the RREO rebate program is to financially assist free public recycling drop-off sites that must ship their recyclables considerable distances to bring them to market or to be further processed.
