State Tech awarded funding for recycling program
State Technical College of Missouri was recently awarded $78,000 to assist with the recycling efforts on the main campus in Linn, Missouri. The funding was approved by the Mid-Missouri Solid Waste Management District (MMSWMD).
The funds will allow for the purchase of a truck outfitted with a hook lift, two covered 20 yard roll-off bins, a concrete pad to place the roll-off bins on and ample small recycling containers.
According to Jason Hoffmeyer, STC Counselor, STC will be recycling more than just paper. “We will be recycling paper, plastic, magazines and cardboard,” said Hoffmeyer. “It is expected that recycling efforts will save STC money on refuse expenses and generate revenue from sold diverted material.”
In addition to the funding, STC expects to utilize the resources already available on campus. The Medium Heavy Truck Technology program will maintain the truck and the Heavy Equipment Operators program has agreed to transport the materials while training CDL students.
With more than 35 programs, State Technical College of Missouri is Missouri’s only public two-year technical college with a statewide mission. STC has campuses in Linn, Mexico and Jefferson City. STC prepares students for profitable employment and a life of learning.
