Southwest Colorado panel seeks to increase recycling as trash piles up

Council of county governments launching educational campaign
Volunteers and interns help sort recyclables in the trash at the Montezuma County Landfill this fall. Sorting and weighing recyclables at the landfills across the region helped experts estimate how much recyclable material is going into the waste stream.
Cardboard and glass are some of the common items that can be recycled, but they often end up in the landfill, according to a recent trash audit. In order to help encourage more people to recycle, the Southwest Colorado Council of Governments is launching an awareness campaign.
