On Saturday, March 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the Michigan State University Surplus Store & Recycling Center will be hosting a free Public Electronics Recycling event to collect e-waste such as TVs, computers, DVD players, digital cameras and other items that have a plug or require batteries.
The collection is part of RecycleMania, a friendly competition among 461 college and university recycling programs across North America where schools vie for national recognition of their recycling and waste minimization efforts. Unlike other categories the E-cycleMania competition category is open to public giving the greater Lansing area the opportunity to support MSU in its effort.
There are no fees or limits for drop-offs, but the Surplus Store and Recycling Center only accepts residential waste (no commercial waste) and will not accept non-electronics, items with refrigerants such as dehumidifiers and refrigerators, or any household hazardous waste (paints, stains, medications) at this time.
The intersection of Farm Lane and Green Way will be blocked during the event, and visitors will be directed to enter the facility from Service Road. The Public Drop-off Center will be open for recycling, but the Surplus Store will not be open for Public Sale during that time.
