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 office paper and newspaper, plastics #1-7, cardboard, aluminum and steel cans, and glass bottles! Cardboard goes in orange dumpsters behind nearly every building. Follow the guidelines provided on the signage to help ensure items are placed into the correct bin.
