TOOELE — The stockpiles of deadly nerve agents are gone, and government contractors are tearing down the Deseret Chemical Depot. Now, two trailers at the chemical depot are being put to good use in the Tooele County School District.
Following a full screening and bidding process, no organization was interested in the trailers. URS Corporation directly contacted local agencies and found that the school district was interested. The trailers were then donated to the school district.
"(School district officials) wanted to go ahead and re-utilize those for some classrooms," said Robert Herrera, URS logistics supervisor. "They're planning on using them for the Stansbury Elementary and Stansbury High School."
URS said the trailers are in good shape and will only require minor renovations.
"(The school district) is appreciative of the donation from Deseret Chemical Depot and is grateful for their support of the schools and their activities," said Terry Linares, Tooele County School District superintendent.
The trailers have a combined worth of about $80,000.
