Fact Sheet: Zero Waste Colorado

Released in 2016

Colorado recycles only 12 percent of its waste, much less than the national average of 34 percent. This fact sheet explores how much waste Coloradans generate, how Colorado compares to other states in its recycling efforts, and the economic boom the state would see if it wasn’t burying up to $170 million each year.
