Waste Management 

For any waste that is produced, proper waste separation is essential for diverting waste from the landfill and turning it into a resource. Campus Recycling is available to help implement your event's waste management goals. 

Request recycling and compost bins for your event through a Work Request. The work order system can only be accessed from campus or through the OHIO VPN. For additional assistance, please contact facilities management at 740-593-2911.
