Help Us Reach Our Goal

Campus Recycling has set a goal of recycling 80% of the waste generated at Ohio University. We are responsible for maintaining, monitoring, troubleshooting and upgrading the recycling and solid waste at all campus buildings and grounds areas. Within these areas are 4,000 recycling units in residence halls consisting of 16,000 bins; 350 bins in apartments; and recycling containers in all offices and other areas in academic, administrative and support areas.

Easier than Ever:
