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.
