All in Recycling

Eco-Cycle Solutions - Zero Waste Solutions

Eco-Cycle is one of the largest non-profit recyclers in the U.S. and has an international reputation as a pioneer in resource conservation. Established in 1976, they made Boulder, Colorado one of the first 20 communities in the U.S. to offer curbside recycling. Now they want to help you do the same in your community. Eco-Cycle has created an online platform that provides the tools and networking needed to help you build a zero waste program in your community. Zero Waste means seeing used materials not as garbage but as valuable resources. Trash represents jobs, financial opportunity, and raw material for new products. If you want to help your local community become less wasteful, start by checking out the simple questionnaire on the Eco-Cycle Solutions website. Just answer a few questions about how your community currently deals with waste, recycling, and composting and Eco-Cycle Solutions will let you know the best way to get started in making a change.
