Resource Wise Business Program 

Resource Wise is the sustainability program for businesses in Summit County.

High Country Conservation Center works in partnership with the Towns of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, and Summit County Government to help businesses reduce energy use, carbon emissions, and waste while improving recycling, composting, and purchasing practices. These businesses save money and have a positive impact on Summit County’s carbon footprint.
