D & L Construction Wins Competitive Grant to Expand Its Recycling Program

and Help Grow Colorado’s Economy

State-sponsored grants divert waste from landfills and create new green-sector jobs

Cortez, CO – D & L Construction has been awarded a $350,000 grant in recognition of plans to expand its recycling program and create new green-sector jobs. The funding is part of the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) competitive grant program, which is administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

D & L Construction is building on more than $11.5 million in RREO grant funds that have gone to making a positive impact on the quality of life in towns, cities and regions across Colorado.

The funds we receive through our RREO grant will help us do more to reduce the impact construction and demolition waste has on the environment. As a RREO grant recipient, D & L Construction will be able to divert more construction debris from our landfills for recycling, help preserve our natural resources, and help reduce wear and tear on roadways in the rural Southwest Colorado and the greater Four Corners area. Contractors utilizing our facility will benefit from reduced disposal and transportation costs.

As D & L Construction expands its recycling plant, new jobs will be created helping to boost the Cortez and Montezuma County economies.
