The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is currently developing Colorado’s Integrated Solid Waste & Materials Management Plan to develop program and policy options for moving materials management (MM) forward in Colorado. As part of this initiative, half-day stakeholder meetings (most are 8:30-1:00) are being conducted around the state (see the following schedule). For attendees, the department is targeting stakeholders interested and involved in solid waste including, but not limited to:
- landfill and recycling / diversion facility owners and operators,
- community/county solid waste professionals,
- elected decision-makers,
- non-profit recyclers,
- recycling businesses, etc.
The meetings will focus on identifying “waste shed” issues and opportunities, disposal/processing facility needs and gaps, examine opportunities for shared services, and address recycling / diversion opportunities and funding gaps.
The department wants your input/ideas/feedback at the stakeholder meeting in your area.
