It's simple! Join a Committee

CAFR is a member-run organization. Make a positive impact on recycling in Colorado by volunteering for a committee--this is where all of the important work happens. CAFR members can login to their member profiles and select committees they want to participate in. Those members will then receive e-mails when meetings for their chosen committees are scheduled or if work needs to be done. Or contact Amy Randell to join a committee or get questions answered.

Thanks to the work of our members, CAFR continues to grow and provide more services for the recycling industry in Colorado. If you have other interests or an idea for a new committee, please let us know; we're always open to suggestions.

Annual Meeting

CAFR's Annual Meeting includes keynote speakers, recycling tours and networking opportunities for recyclers. You can help coordinate and plan the event, suggest ideas for tours or speakers, or host an annual meeting.


Education and Outreach

Children are the future of recycling. Help promote education in Colorado by volunteering to be a judge of CAFR's poster contest, help promote the contest in your community or suggest a great idea for a theme.


Membership Development

Help the committee solicit new and active members. This is your organization. Who do you think should be involved?



The CAFR newsletter is published quarterly and helps members stay current on the latest news in the Colorado recycling industry. You can be a part of planning and writing articles or lend your editing eye to the final document.



Join the Policy Committee to "have a place at the table" at the state legislature. The Policy Committee discusses, keeps track of and pursues policy issues related to waste reduction and recycling.


Recycling Awards

Each year at the Summit for Recycling, CAFR recognizes governmental entities, individuals, companies and organizations for their excellence in recycling. You can spread the word about the awards, nominate a worthy recycler or help evaluate the applications.


Summit for Recycling

This conference brings together scores of recycling professionals from throughout Colorado and beyond. It is CAFR's largest and most important event. Help CAFR develop relevant workshop topics, invite motivating speakers, help fill the exhibit hall with vendors, find a great band to play at the fundraising gala, the list of possibilities goes on and on.


Web Site

The CAFR Web site is an integral part of the organization. Like to give your opinion? Join the Website Committee and CAFR staff will contact you with questions about what looks good, what makes sense and how to best communicate CAFR information and activities.
