Materials Recycling Handling Area TransportationRecyclingSustainable Landscape

Inside this 2.5 acre facility is an area that the University uses to recycle/handle resources in a cost effective manner. Soil from campus excavation sites is brought to this location and stored by type of soil. This soil is then reused for projects thoughout the campus. Other projects that we perform here are asphalt,brick, and concrete crushing into stone pak, as well as chipping woody debris into a high quality mulch product. There is also a "Reuse" area where the Department of Recycling and Resource Management stages materials to be reused at a later date (i.e. Move-Outs/FreeCycle), carpet recycling, ceiling tile recycling, etc. We also recycle in excess of 150 tons of scrap metal a year from this location.
