LATTC’s Scrap metal recycling program

  • A vast majority of scrap metal on campus is generated from Automotive, Welding and Construction Technology Departments and its mostly comprised of conduit, iron and steel.
  • Metal from these departments is collected on three-yard bins and then transported to the recycling farm, where is then picked up and hauled by a local recycler.
  • If your department generates large amounts of metal, aluminum, iron, steel, etc. please contact us and we will deliver a bin.
