The purpose of this program is to create or expand end-markets for recyclables and organic materials within the state. The goal is to incentivize the creation of a closed-loop economy where there are no waste products, only materials that can be reprocessed and sold as feedstock to manufacturers to make new products. It is the intention of the funding agency to incentivize end-market development to create an in-state demand for recyclables and organic materials. Projects are also expected to promote economic development in Colorado through the productive management of recyclable materials that would otherwise be treated as discards.
