Recycle at Ohio University

2022 Community Give Back Day 

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Community Give Back Day. With the help of volunteers and Campus Recycling staff, we picked up and donated 90,405 lbs. of materials. That's 45 tons of food, furniture, small accessories and clothes that have been donated back to the Athens Community.
