ReUse Instead of Buying New!
Getting ready to move into the Residence Halls or your own apartment? Instead of buying brand-new furniture, appliances, and other supplies, consider buying gently-used items instead! They're oftentimes much less expensive and keep finite resources out of the landfill/ in our environment!

BGSU's recycling program

BGSU's recycling program

BGSU offers single-stream recycling throughout all of campus. This means all recyclables go into the recycling bin and non-recyclables go into the landfill bin. Recyclables include paper, plastics #1-7, cardboard, metal, and glass! Follow the guidelines provided on the signage to help ensure items are placed into the correct bin.
