Most windows are made using tempered glass. Due to the nature of its construction, tempered glass cannot be accepted for recycling. Therefore, only reusable windows can be accepted from Construction and Demolition project sites.
All windows/window treatments accepted from C&D sites are redistributed through the Surplus Store. Contractors and project leads should contact MSU Surplus and Recycling at (517)355-1723 or Recycle@msu.edu prior to or at the start of any projects in order to arrange for the best possible collection methods for preserving and receiving the windows.
