You have waste to get rid of. We can help with that.

You've got plastics, paper, aluminum, cardboard, and other materials. Don't throw them away - recycle them and even turn them into meals for people facing hunger in our community.

  • Recycling Experts

    At Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado, we've been recycling our waste for years. It only made sense that we'd use our knowledge in the recycling industry to turn waste into food for hungry families.

  • What We Take

    Shrink wrap, plastic bags, zipper storage bags, cereal/food liners, bubble wrap, #1 and #2 plastics, aluminum, office paper, envelopes newspaper, cardboard, and wooden pallets.

At Our Place

Free, Public Drop Off

Our community has needs and GOALZERO Recycling is stepping up to fill them - but we need your help! Most free, public recycling facilities have closed - so we opened one. And we turn your recyclables into meals for people facing hunger.

  • The Right Solution

    What seems like trash to you can be valuable material for other businesses and organizations. We take your recyclable materials, get it to those businesses, and give the revenue we generate to Care and Share.

  • On Your Schedule

    Drop off your recycling at 2265 Waynoka Road on the east side of Colorado Springs. We've partnered with the La-Z-Boy Warehouse to create this recycling space; it's open to you for drop offs Monday-Saturday from 8am-4pm.

STEP 3 OF 3

Make a Difference

We partner with families, businesses, and organizations.

Your recyclables and our processes create a revenue stream that diverts waste from our community’s landfills and feeds our community's people.

  • Feeding People

    The revenue we generate is invested in the work of Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado, the owner of GoalZero Recycling. For every dollar Care and Share receives, they can acquire enough food for eight meals.

  • Serving the Mission

    95% of every dollar Care and Share receives directly assists people facing hunger. They work with more than 300 organizations across 31 counties to help our neighbors in need. And your recycling helps!
