Recycling Stats from Walking Mountains Science School
The nationwide average for Material Solid Waste (MSW) Recycling is 34%. Colorado is well below that at 11%.  This means of all the waste Colorado produces, we recycle 23% less than the rest of the nation on average.

Colorado might be behind the national average overall, but Eagle county recycles more than twice the state-wide average.  In 2014, Eagle County reached 25% waste diversion.
