Konar Nokken works to collect items across campus for the Surplus Store and Recycling Center. In support of MSU’s mission and strategic sustainability goals, Nokken and his co-workers manage campus’ waste as a resource through reuse and recycling.
The Surplus Store and Recycling Center team collects and sorts materials from campus buildings and a public drop-off site. Recyclable materials and reusable items are sold to support university operations. More importantly, the process diverts thousands of tons of waste from landfills each year.
