Reuse Options

Asphalt is an item that is typically recycled rather than reused. Contractors or project leads wishing to participate in our Construction and Demolition Recycling Program are encouraged to contact us by phone or email with questions.

Where to Recycle Asphalt

Contractors or project leads wishing to participate in our Construction and Demolition Recycling Program are encouraged to contact MSU Recycling at (517)355-1723 or Recycle@msu.edu in order to plan the appropriate services and recycling containers for each project site. Typically, asphalt will be collected in a roll-off container with any concrete or masonry materials for recycling.
