The Temporary Intermediate Processing Facility was a temporary structure built to support CU Recycling Operations in the transitional time period between the demolition of the old IPF sorting facility and the construction of the new GROC facility. From May 2104 to June of 2015, the TIPF served as the stepping-stone that allowed CU recycling to maintain operations on campus. As construction of the GROC was underway, student recyclers worked through the winter, continuing to sort through campus recyclables, helping to maintain campus diversion rates even as the University of Colorado Grounds and Recycling waited for a permanent home for recycling operations.
