Welcome to OSU Recycles

This page describes OSU’s efforts to collect recyclable materials that would otherwise go to the landfill. OSU provides an infrastructure for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to recycle cardboard, paper, plastic water and soda bottles, and aluminum cans. 
 
Other items are also recycled on campus. On this site you can find statistics and information about recovered materials, as well as information on how your department can participate in the campus recycling effort.

OSU Recycles Mission and Goals

The OSU Recycling Committee adopted a mission statement for the OSU Recycles program on September 11, 2013.
 
The OSU Recycles Program mission is to cultivate a campus-wide, sustainable recycling system and culture that will increase OSU Stillwater's recycling rate, reduce waste and pollution, and raise resource conservation awareness through education and outreach programs that foster generations of environmental stewards.

OSU Recycling History

OSU Physical Plant Services began its recycling efforts under the direction of then Physical Plant director John Houck in 1991. The recycling of plastic bottles and aluminum cans was added in 2010 with the leadership of then Chief Facilities Officer Rick Krysiak. Krysiak, along with Director of Facilities Adrian Self, created the OSU Recycling Department in March 2013.
