Go green with Goodwill, the original recycler

Goodwill is one of the largest recyclers in the nation and is committed to the sustainability, safety, and beauty of our environment.

When you donate your gently used items to Goodwill of Colorado, you’re keeping them from ending up in the landfill, while providing our shoppers with fabulous finds at affordable prices. But the story doesn’t end there. Through Goodwill’s stewardship, your donations are also repurposed into life-changing programs for Coloradans in need. Goodwill has been reducing environmental waste and increasing recycling in Colorado for more than a century. We continue to develop innovative and eco-friendly systems and community partnerships to work towards zero waste, all while practicing our bottom line: People, Community and Planet.

Program Highlights

  • Through our retail stores, Outlet locations, and recycling partners, Goodwill of Colorado is able to divert an impressive 88% of all donated materials from the landfill.

  • Our generous neighbors gave 3,214,680 donations to Goodwill in 2019. These donations weighed in at 178,029,441 pounds!
