Recycle at Ohio University

Rufus Recycle Days 

During Rufus Recycle Days, certain sports at OU will have a designated game during their season that will be a “green game”. To make the games more sustainable, there will be volunteers “bin goalieing” to make sure that any cans, paper, plastics, and food waste are disposed of properly. During halftime, fans can also participate in various games. Throughout the game, there will be tables where students and community members can learn about Campus Recycling and the Office of Sustainability and all of the amazing work they do to keep our campus clean, beautiful, and sustainable.
