Of all schools in the Big Ten Conference, Ohio State diverted the most waste from the landfill during the 2015 football season, highlighting the university’s commitment to sustainability. The results were released as part of the national GameDay Recycling Challenge. This season, Ohio State had an average diversion rate of 96.35 percent, with more than 68 tons of waste being diverted to either recycling or composting. In comparison, only three tons of waste generated went to the landfill.
Faculty, staff and students influence sustainable practices at the university through daily activities in their respective workspaces. The Green Buckeye Certification, a program that exists to inform and encourage implementation of best practices in campus office spaces to improve the sustainability performance, has expanded to include laboratories. By becoming Green Buckeye Certified, offices and laboratories demonstrate their commitment to Ohio State’s sustainability goals. Congratulations to the College of Public Health — the first location to have all offices and laboratories certified.
