All waste steel and non-ferrous metals that are property of the university are diverted from the landfill by our metal recycling program.

Metal recycling dumpster.

Since May 2010, NMU has recycled 88 tons (176,000 lbs.) of metal. Included in this tonnage is metal shelving recycled by the Learning Resources Center as well as metal recycled from building demolition with the start of NMU's new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant.
