Rake 'Em Up

Rake 'Em Up

November
Go to work on the season's falling leaves with your trusty yard rake and your emissions are limited to a little sweat. Using a gas-powered leaf blower can spew out as much emissions in 1 hour as driving a car 350 miles. What's more, the car spreads the pollution over a wide area, but the leaf blower puts it right in your yard!

new recycling program

new recycling program

This fall, BGSU will feature a brand new recycling program: single stream recycling. This means recyclables no longer need to be sorted out by the type; all recyclables go into the recycling bin and non-recyclables go into the landfill bin. Recyclables will now include the previously denied plastics #1-7, metal, and glass! This makes recycling easier and more convenient for all BGSU students, staff, faculty, and guests! New bins and signage will be deployed to inform the campus community! Learn more
