Recycling grants and rebates

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. Since its inception in 2007, the program has awarded nearly $25 million to businesses, local governments, nonprofit organizations, and schools and universities to help develop recycling infrastructure and promote sustainable behavior change in communities across Colorado.
