Through the comprehensive waste management plan, MSU is working to improve overall efforts to divert waste from the landfill.  To support these efforts, the MSU Sustainability team has developed the following Recycling 101 guides to improve recycling efforts and overall awareness on campus. The main Recycling 101 presents recycling history, facts, and how to recycle at Missouri State University in an organized format for students, staff, and faculty!  The “Mini” is a streamlined version of the Recycling 101 that omits some of the history information.
