Community

Michigan State University promotes sustainability both on and off campus by engaging communities in Greater Lansing through education and outreach. By openly sharing and exchanging processes and lessons learned with the general public, MSU contributes to its legacy as a land-grant institution.

Recycling Center, Surplus Store and Bikes Service Center

MSU provides the campus and surrounding community with state-of-the-art recycling and surplus facilities. The Recycling Center features a Public Drop-Off Center, making recycling hassle-free by providing an accessible location and accepting a wide-range of materials.

Visitors to the Surplus Store find more than just products and services; customers also experience sustainability first-hand by purchasing items for reuse.

The Bikes Service Center promotes bicycling to the community as a sustainable transportation mode and healthy activity.
