Facilities Management

Objective / Mission Statement:

In support of the academic endeavors which are the purpose and function of this institution of higher education; maintain the facilities and physical surroundings to provide a pleasant, comfortable, safe, and sustainable environment in which to learn, teach, and/or work while ever striving to improve these facilities and the management thereof with the ultimate goal of providing superior services to our customers; the students, faculty, staff, and community which comprise Ohio University Southern.


Recycling Program

Ohio University Southern utilizes a co-mingled recycle system meaning that paper, plastic, aluminum, and cardboard are all deposited into the same receptacle. The recyclables are then sorted and separated off-site at a recycling facility in Haverhill, Ohio. Just look for the cobalt blue recycling containers and stickers located around campus.

In cooperation with the Lawrence-Scioto Solid Waste District, Ohio University Southern provides space at our Ironton campus as a community recycling center site. Two co-mingled recycling dumpsters are located in the parking lot accessed from the 9th Street entrance and located behind the Collins Center. This recycling site benefits both the community and the campus.
