About Us

Established in 1976, CU Recycling has become one of the leading campus recycling programs in the country.  Built by student action and motivation, CU Recycling has grown to become integral to the campus operations.  Throughout University buildings and events, recycling and composting efforts can be seen all over campus.   CU’s achievements in recycling have attracted attention from the National Recycling Coalition, who recognized us with its first "Outstanding School Program" award in 1995.
