Ohio State's goal is to become Zero Waste by 2025 and we need your help! Here are five easy tips to be green.

1. Recycle! There are bins located everywhere on campus! See the attached flyer for every item that is recyclable on campus and in the Columbus area.

2. Use the COTA bus to sightsee and visit Columbus!
