15. Fight Contaminated Recycling!

Help us fight contaminated Recycling!
The BGSU recycling program diverts a lot of materials from the landfill, but your help is needed in keeping UNRECYLABLE materials OUT of our containers!

Plastic bags, disposable coffee cups, straws, styrofoam of any kind, to-go containers, plastic utensils, paper towels, grease-stained pizza boxes, and food of any kind are all CONTAMINANTS and should not be placed in recycling bins. Cans, bottles (plastic or glass), newspaper/office paper such as notebook paper, sticky notes and envelopes, and cardboard are all RECYLABLE. Large cardboard should be placed in orange cardboard dumpsters which are labelled “cardboard only” and are behind most buildings on campus. There is a special bin just for recycling plastic bags inside the main entrance of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Thank you for your help in reducing waste at BGSU! Contact greenbg@bgsu.edu with any questions.
