Examples of masonry items include brick, cinder clock, and stone. Any masonry materials containing loose fluids or hazardous waste cannot be accepted for recycling.
If possible, it is best for reusable masonry items such as whole bricks to be collected prior to or at the start of any Construction or Demolition projects. Reusable masonry materials are typically collected in Gaylords or are palletized.
Where to Recycle Masonry
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, C&D masonry will be collected in a roll-off container with asphalt and concrete materials for recycling.

Where Does It Go?
When designated for reuse, masonry items are redistributed through the Surplus Store.
When recycled, masonry items are ground into a powder and used as aggregate for concrete which is reused on-campus.
