The physical plant staff goes around campus, one time daily, and takes the recyclable material from every bin. All of the recyclable materials that are picked up are taken to the Mecosta County Recycling Center.
Ferris State University offers a couple opportunities for recycling. Either you can use the recycle receptacles located inside some of the designated buildings or the large containers located outside strategically placed around campus.
