A special virtual, digital presentation at the annual Summit for Recycling: Building a Circular Economy in the Rockies, to be hosted in August by Recycle Colorado, will focus on creating economic growth through end market development using a circular model. The association says central to this year's discussion will be the need for a truly circular system for materials that will create new jobs, enhance infrastructure and technology, as well as meet international sustainability initiatives.

Recycle Colorado is hosting the Summit for Recycling virtual conference August 25 - 26, 2020. Starting with a focus on America as a whole, then Colorado state, and ending with the City of Boulder, this year's program kicks off at 9:00 AM with a circular economy plenary session featuring the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, City of Boulder, and Arizona State University to provide perspectives from the regional, state and local levels. 

Attendees will learn the importance of building circular economies and transforming the way we design, make, and use materials. In a press release circulated to the recycling industry, Recycle Colorado states: "As we work to more sustainably manage finite resources and decrease pollution in our shrinking space, there is an opportunity to create economic growth through end-market development."

According to Recycle Colorado, circular economies are in the spotlight more than ever following the shockwaves of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the shift in security, travel and transportation and business operations, the focus needs to be on how we can fortify and better use the resources we have.
