Colorado is one of the most wasteful states, recycling only 12% of its waste compared to 34% nationwide.

Denver, the state’s population center, only recycled 20 percent of its discards in 2016. Curbside recycling is available only to most single-family residents--not to multi-family properties or businesses--and curbside composting is only available to a small percentage of Denver’s population.
