USGBC: Tour of CU Boulder Grounds & Recycling Operations Center
July 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree - $5
In the summer of 2015, the brand new Grounds and Recycling Operations Center began operations on the CU campus. The GROC is an intermediate step in the recycling process between the campus buildings at the University of Colorado and the end markets for recycling. Recyclable materials collected from recycling bins across campus are delivered to the ROC, where student workers load, sort, and weigh materials in preparation for shipment to the local Boulder County Recycling Center, where materials are further processed and shipped to markets to be made into new products. During this tour you will learn about the facility and the lessons the team experienced in the LEED Gold Certification and operations process.
