MSU Community Resue Days
It's time to clear out some space in your garage, attic, and basement before winter, because we're giving the entire MSU community a green option for getting rid of unwanted items. more information...
Homecoming week, starting October 17th, will be our next biannual Community Reuse Days event, where all reusable items will be accepted from MSU faculty, staff, students, alumni, and retirees.
Typical goods include sporting equipment and apparel, non-upholstered furniture, electronics, appliances, media, knick knacks, and a wide assortment of other objects. Items received at the event will be recycled, resold, or donated to a non-profit organization. As with everything collected by the MSU Surplus Store & Recycling Center, sending material to the landfill is always a last resort.
This particular Community Reuse Days event will be the first time that e-waste (non-functioning electronic parts) recycling and confidential document shredding will be offered for free. However, it should be noted that the event is for individuals, not businesses.
Proceeds from re-sellable items will support our continuing increase of materials collected from campus and the community. The MSU Recycling Drop-off Center recently started accepting all colors of glass, and we are currently looking into solutions for recycling polystyrene (Styrofoam) and alkaline batteries.
Donations will be accepted at the north dock of the MSU Surplus Store & Recycling Center from 7:00am to 3:00pm from Monday, October 17th through Friday, October 21st. Call 517-355-1723 for more details.
