MSU Recycling: Behind the Scenes Tour
Type: Open House or Tour
What happens when you toss something in the recycling bin? First, it's hauled to a material recovery facility, like ours at MSU, where it’s combined with similar material and baled for shipment. Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at how student and full-time staff work together to process over 8 million pounds of recyclables collected on campus and at our public drop-off center. You’ll walk around the floor where we operate, take a step up to the sort line where materials are hand separated, and come face-to-face with a 1,400-pound bale of recyclables.
