Waste Diversion and Recycling in Windsor

Recycling Projects

We have a number of recycling projects in flight ... here is a brief discussion on each of our initiatives

“If it can’t be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled, or composted, then it should be restricted, designed or removed from production.”
Pete Seeger, Folk Singer & Social Activist


Recycling Awareness - Developing a set of materials for the Windsor community to increase awareness on recycling - we look to launch this in April

Create Outdoor Advertising - Working with the Town on implementing an innovative approach for recycling in public spaces e.g. parks and common areas

Hauler Licensing - Working with the Town and the Front Range to investigate hauler licensing and potentially single hauler program

Future - We are looking at additional projects around composting, preparing for the Extended Producer Responsibilty implementation, working with Larimer and Weld County on waste diversion projects as they relate to Windsor, and fighting for a more sustainable NOCO community (e.g., fighting plastic pyrolysis, the new NOCO Material Recovery Facility (MRF)
