Petey's Green Tips




Fast Fact--> OU currently recycles 8 cubic meters of would-be waste per week, or 120 cubic meters of recycled material per semester!

Recycling at Oglethorpe is easy and user friendly. Every floor of each campus building has one bright blue, clearly marked recycling container for single-stream recycling.

All recyclable materials should be placed in this one container, including glass, plastic, aluminum, and paper. This flier outlines all the items that may be single-stream recycled. Recycling is collected along with trash by Oglethorpe’s dedicated housekeeping staff. Please take advantage of campus recycling and recycle your paper, bottles, and cans in the blue bins of your dorm, class building, and other campus buildings.

Do your part to make Oglethorpe an environmentally friendly campus. Reduce waste by only printing when necessary, printing on both sides of paper, and using reusable cups and bottles. Before you throw something away, check to see if it is recyclable and recycle all plastic, aluminum and paper in the blue single-stream bins.
