Fact Sheet: How Local Governments will Benefit from a Producer Responsibility Policy in Colorado
Released in 2022
Recycling in Colorado is managed primarily at the local level and cities, towns, and counties have a wide range of approaches. Many local governments spend tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to run or support recycling drop-off centers or curbside collection programs. Through Producer Responsibility, the companies that make these products will pay for the recycling programs, providing substantial cost savings to local governments while maintaining or improving existing services.
