GJ CRI is a locally owned and operated business. Residential curbside recycling is offered in partnership with the City of Grand Junction under the direction of the Solid Waste Management Department. All money derived from the sale of commodities collected at the curb is returned to the City to help offset program costs. All products listed in the Residential recycling Guide are sent to market. In other words, if we say that we accept it, it’s because it will be recycled. If it arrives at our facility and meets our guidelines, it will be sent to a mill right here in the US to be manufactured into something new.
Curbside recycling was a new concept in western Colorado in 1989 when Mesa State College hosted a conference entitled “Think Globally, Act Locally”. In response to the interest of City Council members and the City Sanitation Supervisor, a local citizen, Steven Foss, volunteered to begin a pilot curbside recycling program. The purpose was to assess the community’s interest in such a program and determine its costs. Steve appropriately named the endeavor Curbside Recycling Indefinitely.
Residents in Spring Valley and downtown joined in the study by agreeing to sort their recyclables for collection each month. Tope Elementary teachers, students, and parents began to spread the word and soon routes were established throughout the City.
The original pilot program was adopted by the City in 1992. GJ CRI currently provides employment for fourteen of your neighbors. There are over 3,600 curbside recycling households in the city limits of Grand Junction. GJ CRI’ s story is an example of how a community can come together to accomplish an important goal. Never doubt that you can make a difference!
