Fact Sheet: HB22-1355 Will Increase Paper Recycling in Colorado
Released in 2022
Despite the fact that paper is highly recyclable, paper recycling rates, and those of other materials, are lagging in Colorado because the state lacks a convenient, equitable, and sustainable recycling system. Through a Producer Responsibility policy, Colorado can transform its current recycling system from a disjointed, confusing, and inconvenient patchwork of programs into a coordinated, equitable, and cost-effective statewide system.
