The Colorado Association for Recycling’s annual recycling Summit is a dynamic conference and exhibition that brings together the state's recycling professionals and individuals dedicated to the principles of recycling, waste prevention and composting. The agenda is complete with educational sessions, a variety of presenters, exhibit hall, site tours, recycling awards, silent auction, and fun evening networking events. This year, 2013, is the 24th year of the Summit.
"The Keys to Unlocking the Next 30%"
In 2012, CAFR adopted a goal for recycling in Colorado that challenges us to increase diversion from landfills from 36%1 to 66% by 2021. We hope the 2013 conference will provide knowledge to help achieve that goal or, in other words, the “keys to unlocking the next 30%.”
