Department of Transportation

Recycling Program

The Department of Transportation is required to comply with certain recycling requirements specified in State law and Executive Order 4, which was issued in April 2008. The Department also has unique recycling responsibilities for old tires and other discarded materials found along the State’s roadways. We found that the Department was not in compliance with its recycling requirements, as it had yet to establish an organization-wide recycling program and was not fully meeting certain recycling reporting requirements. In addition, when we visited selected Department facilities, we found that some of the facilities were not meeting certain recycling requirements. We recommended that the Department fully comply with all applicable recycling requirements.
