Through a concerted effort over 20 years, Fort Collins has achieved a significant 47% waste diversion rate. The City has stimulated public and private investment in reuse, recycling, and composting initiatives that led to that success. The goal to divert 50% of Fort Collins’ waste from landfills, set in 1999, was almost achieved and has demonstrated that a planned, methodical approach to adopting innovative policies, programs and facilities could dramatically reduce waste and increase recycling in Fort Collins.
