It’s a program that creates both jobs and revenue for the city, as well as increases its profile as a green community.

Colorado Springs is launching its public space recycling program on Earth Day, Friday, April 22.

The program is a partnership with Greener Corners, a full-service public space recycling and environmental organization.

The program will not cost taxpayers any money.

Organizers will place 60 combination trash and recycle bins in the core downtown area and 90 bins throughout the city’s parks and sport complexes.

Greener Corners will install and maintain the recycling stations. Advertisements sold by Greener Corners will cover the cost of the program and earn additional revenue for the city.

A local project manager, sales manager and maintenance team will operate the program from offices on Tejon Street.
