With your support, we're moving our community toward Zero Waste and providing a model for the world with these programs:
Since its inception in 1976, Eco-Cycle has been Boulder County’s recycling processor, and since 2001 Eco-Cycle has operated the Boulder County Recycling Center.
Since 2005, Eco-Cycle has offered a unique Zero Waste Services package to businesses, helping businesses keep up to 90% of the discards they produce out of landfills.
In November of 2001, Eco-Cycle® opened the Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM), the first center of its kind in the nation.
Since 1987, Eco-Cycle has coordinated the Boulder/Broomfield County School Recycling and Environmental Education Program, which integrates environmental education with established school curriculum, ensuring that students in Boulder and Broomfield Counties learn about their environment and what they can do to care for it.
Eco-Cycle International™ was created to spread the concept of Zero Waste to other communities, help them implement specific Zero Waste rules, build Zero Waste infrastructure, and create local Zero Waste economies.
Eco-Cycle provides a wide variety of community education services, publications and activities to promote waste reduction, encourage reuse, recycling and composting, and advance our community’s—and the nation’s—progress toward Zero Waste.
Eco-Cycle® promotes and facilitates the reuse of materials whenever possible, and works to add a reuse component for each type of material collected for recycling at the CHaRM.
