Donation of materials

Asked February 25, 2020, 1:39 PM EST

I would like to donate some egg cartons if there is a need for any 4 H people or their families that could use them. I have a local Coney Island that saved them for me to give a local farmer but he no longer needs them. I currently have 1000-2000 cartons available to donate. They are all foam cartons that hold twelve eggs. I hate to just recycle them. Thanks for your time.

Thank you for your question and offer!

MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center (
in Novi will gladly accept them. While the quantity is a bit more than what the farm and the youth could use right away, there is storage at the facility and they would also share the egg cartons with Maybury Farm in Novi ( ) which also has an educational farm program.

Please contact the Tollgate Farm assistant farm manager, Deanna Wagner at to make arrangements.
