The Indiana State University Recycle Center opened in May of 1990. It started as a University endeavor to reduce landfill costs and to make a positive influence on our environment.

Our Center has turned into a community recycling center and an educational center to promote sustainability and recycling throughout the University, the City of Terre Haute, Vigo County, and the State of Indiana. We offer tours of our facility to share our success and inspire others to recycle. Enter to find out more about us.
