Eco-Cycle launched recycling in Colorado in 1976, and today is one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit recyclers and a leader of the Zero Waste movement. For over 46 years, our local Zero Waste models have helped transform our “take-make-waste” society, conserving natural resources and providing climate solutions. We work with every sector of the community to innovate, implement, and advocate for local and global Zero Waste solutions to foster a more regenerative, equitable, and climate-resilient future.

More than 40% of our climate impact comes from our “consumption emissions”—or how we extract, consume, and dispose of our stuff and our food. As one of the leading Zero Waste organizations in the world, Eco-Cycle is prioritizing three major solutions to reduce and even reverse these emissions.
The Urgency to Reduce Plastics
Plastic pollution is choking the planet. We must take action NOW.
Composting & Carbon Farming
Applying compost to landscapes builds healthier soils, and helps reverse climate change.
Zero Waste Colorado
Our work to implement recycling and composting infrastructure and policies throughout the state
