The First Years
The recycling operation started in 1989 by students in an agricultural class. The University sanctioned club, Project Recycle, gained national recognition in 1994 by winning a first-place award in "The Pledge and a Promise" competition. The $12,000 monetary award was used to construct a campus-recycling center. UTM Recycles! received an Award of Excellence in 2009 from TDOT. Mike Davis, Recycle Coordinator, currently leads in this environmental operation.
The New Recycling Center takes donations of the following items: paper and cardboard, aluminum cans, #1 and #2 plastics, Wal-Mart bags, books, steel cans and other scrap metal, and shredded paper. The recycle center does not accept Styrofoam, electronics or glass.
