About Campus Recycling


Campus Recycling staff posed by their stake bed vehicle

In 1990, OHIO created the recycling department. We were the first university in the state to do this!  

Today, Campus recycling facilitates the implementation of the Sustainability and Climate Action Plan, which sets environmental targets, goals and commitments. Our team provides services and support to the campus community by reducing University purchases, sharing, reusing, repairing, donation and recycling existing materials.
