Holiday Recycling Guide

Wondering if wrapping paper can go in curbside recycling? Have leftover grease from that deep-fried turkey? Stuck with a mountain of cardboard?

Find out where to recycle these items and many more in this year’s Holiday Recycling Guide!

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, household waste increases by more than 25 percent! That’s 30 million live trees, 4 million tons of gift wrap, and 2.6 billion holiday cards. Recycling all this the right way and reducing what you produce in the first place helps keep waste out of the landfill.

Share the Holiday Recycling Guide with your staff and get ClimateWise credit! 

Don’t Forget Your Waste Tracker!

While your reporting your ClimateWise actions, don’t forget to fill out your waste tracker to tell us how much you recycled in 2018. Remember, ClimateWise reporting is due Jan. 31.

Fort Collins Electric Vehicle Readiness Roadmap

In 2018, the City of Fort Collins developed an Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness Roadmap to support current and future EV adoption in our community. The Roadmap establishes a vision, goals and clearly defined roles for City Departments, the private sector, and the community. This work will be incorporated into the Transportation Master Plan and City Plan efforts moving forward.

Check out the EV Roadmap.

Reduce your operating costs in 2019 by reducing your
electricity and water use.

Fort Collins Utilities offers a variety of rebates and incentives on equipment that will save you money while making your business more attractive to customers and your staff. In some cases, the rebates will cover 100 percent of the project cost!
