Opportunity for Colorado nonprofit and for-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, and individual entrepreneurs to participate in a waste reduction project development program. The opportunity is intended to help participants pursue creative projects that will develop new, or improve existing, recycling and composting end markets in the state. NextCycle Colorado is a business accelerator designed to improve the end markets for recovered commodities and organic materials in Colorado.
NextCycle helps the state reach its waste diversion goal by catalyzing recycling and recovery end-market growth while simultaneously creating jobs, increasing tax revenue, and improving Colorado’s environment. NextCycle helps teams develop their business plans, make connections across the state, find partners, understand the industry and economic data, identify feedstock, secure funding, and drive toward shovel-ready projects under the guidance of an expert advisory committee.
Projects that directly improve existing end markets or create new end markets for recycled or composted materials in Colorado are eligible for NextCycle. End markets for NextCycle are projects, businesses, or other entities that turn recovered materials into marketable products; this includes manufacturing, secondary processing, and re-use. Recovered materials are materials that have reached the end of their current use and may include plastics, metals, fibers, organics (including food scraps), and construction and demolition debris. There is no maximum or minimum project size, and there is no preferred geographic distribution of projects within Colorado.
Teams that apply and are accepted into the NextCycle Colorado program will be able to advance their end-market endeavors through:
