Overview

The Recycled Materials Resource Center was established at the University of New Hampshire under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). The center is funded at $1.5 million dollars per year for six years, beginning in FY 1999. Dr. Taylor Eighmy is the Director of the Center

The RMRC is administered via a cooperative agreement between FHWA and the University of New Hampshire. An advisory panel has been established to provide direction for the center activities, liaison to various constituencies, and advocacy and support for the center and its mission. The advisory board includes representatives from FHWA, EPA, New Hampshire DOT, AASHTO, ASTSWMO (Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials), industry, and highway trade associations.

The mission of the RMRC falls under two areas: research and outreach. The major research-oriented goals are to test, evaluate and develop guidelines for recycled materials use to analyze long-term performance of highways containing recycled materials.

The major outreach-oriented goals are to make information available to clients (such as State or local DOTs and environmental agencies) to work with officials to reduce institutional barriers to the use of recycled materials in highways.
