RecycleMania

Ohio State is ready for RecycleMania 

The Ohio State University will look to sustain its sustainability success, as RecycleMania 2018 kicks off on February 5. Ohio State is coming off a successful 2017 showing, as it finished 13th out of 350 participating schools in total recycling. RecycleMania is an annual eight-week competition amongst colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada, to see which school can recycle and reduce the most amount of waste. Recycling and waste figures are measured all across Ohio State’s Columbus campus. Students, faculty and staff can all help Ohio State score big by following these recycling tips: fod.osu.edu/recycling
