Colorado lawmakers and recyclers pushing for state funding for statewide plan

According to Joey Bunch in a December 2015 article published in the Denver Post: A group of Colorado political leaders and recyclers want some government help in turning garbage into jobs and profits in an environmentally conscious state with a lousy track record of reusing its waste.

And though the state is facing a budget crunch next year, Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’s listening.

Boulder-based Eco-Cycle, one of the largest nonprofit recyclers in the United States, and the Colorado Association for Recycling is working with state House Speaker Dickey Lee Hullinghorst and other state and local officials to set up a task force that would try to boost the use of recycled materials and the availability of new local recycling programs with the help of state funding.  Follow the link below to learn more.
