The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is currently seeking applicants who have experience working in Colorado’s recycling, composting, and/or reuse industries to fill a vacant seat on the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board Assistance Committee. This committee is tasked with oversight of the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund, advising the department on the administration of this Fund’s grant and rebate programs.
Due to the committee’s membership requirements as prescribed in statute, the seat that is available can be filled only by an individual who is employed by or has the ability to represent a for-profit business or nonprofit organization, and is registered to vote with the Republican Party, or as an unaffiliated voter. (The committee has reached the maximum number of Democratic Party members allowable by statute).The selected applicant will serve out the remaining term of the seat being filled through August 1, 2021. Selected applicants will have the option to re-apply as an incumbent for up to three consecutive four-year terms. All committee members are appointed by the Executive Director of the department through a competitive selection process.
Note that being a member of this committee does not preclude your business or organization from applying for future grant or rebate opportunities through the RREO program.
