The recycling scene in the Pikes Peak Region can be confusing because the city of Colorado Springs does not provide trash services nor does it grant a franchise to a single hauler. Residents must arrange for trash services house by house from any number of private companies, some of which provide recycling collection, some of which don't.
The Recycling Coalition of Colorado Springs has brought all the players to the table - city staff, trash haulers and small recyclers - in an effort to identify a sensible, comprehensive recycling program for the region. That process may include efforts to change state law so that diversion from landfills is mandatory. In the meantime, the group has purchased single-stream recycling bins for use at all community events (provided we have volunteers to staff them)!
