Campus master plan

The campus master plan guides long-term physical development of the MSU campus.

Construction waste recycling

Contractors working on campus can reduce waste disposal costs by utilizing Surplus Store and Recycling’s waste evaluation and removal service. It is a great way to help meet LEED standards and establish a “green” construction project. The MSU Recycling Center works with both the construction rep and the contractor working on the job to come up with the best plan of action. Recycling typically charges the contractor directly as a replacement for other haulers in the area. Find out how.
