The Colorado Convention Center has single stream recycling throughout the facility and a back of house compost collection program to help minimize the amount of materials hauled to landfills. In addition to these programs, we have an advanced donation program for left over conference materials. Items are collected stored in our onsite Reclaim Room while we contact our various local nonprofits and organizations who utilize these materials. In the first year of establishing this program, almost 30,000lbs of materials were donated to the local community.
