Composting and Recycling Still a Challenge at Ohio State
It’s not easy being green — even at Ohio State.
Ohio State adopted a zero-waste goal in 2015 as part of a list of sustainability goals set by the university, according to Ohio State’s sustainability website. One goal was to divert 90 percent of Ohio State’s 20,000 tons of annual campus waste from landfills by 2025. Strides have been made toward achieving zero waste on campus, but a lack of knowledge on proper recycling techniques and accessible compost bins on campus creates a challenge for students who wish to help in the effort, according to campus officials in sustainability.
