Household Appliances

Household appliances are composed of many base materials such as metals, fiber glass, and plastics which must be recycled separately. Household appliances which are dumped as waste and are not recycled properly are considered hazardous waste materials which can harm humans and the environment.

Reuse Options

MSU departments wishing to dispose of old working appliances such as microwaves and coffee machines should submit a Pick Up Request Form (PURF). Prior to submitting a PURF MSU department members should make sure that none of their items for disposal contain university asset tags. Any items purchased for $5000 or more using university funds will have university asset tags and should be transferred as an asset from the sending department to MSU Surplus and Recycling prior to the PURF being completed. Students, faculty and staff can drop items off at the Surplus Store during regular business hours.
