About the guide
The Eco-Cycle Guide can be found in print at the CHaRM (Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials) and at local coffee shops and stores throughout Boulder County. It contains more than seven Zero Waste Guidelines posters, including our "Is it compostable?" handout for deciphering which products are truly safe for composting curbside, and the most recent recycling guidelines for Boulder County. Eco-Cycle operates the county-owned Boulder County Recycling Center.
To help distribute the Eco-Cycle Guide in your neighborhood, sign up to be a volunteer Eco-Leader.
The Eco-Cycle Guide is distributed throughout Boulder County by hundreds of Eco-Cycle Eco-Leaders. These volunteers help neighbors, coworkers, church members and others in their community learn the ins and outs of recycling, composting, waste reduction and other environmental issues. If you would like to join the Eco-Cycle Network, call 303-444-6634 or email us.
