Fact Sheet: Producer Responsibility Will Increase Recycling, Reduce Unnecessary Packaging, and Strengthen Supply Chains

Released in 2022

A Producer Responsibility policy will make it easy for all Coloradans to recycle more plastics, aluminum cans, glass bottles, cardboard, and printed paper. It will also help businesses by creating a more resilient domestic supply of recycled materials to make new products. This will rapidly improve Colorado’s recycling rate and result in fewer greenhouse gas emissions, cleaner air and water, less waste sent to landfills, and stronger local economies.
