OverviewFinal 2015 Donation Drive thermometer which totals 33,950 pounds

Each year, OSU Campus Recycling and Surplus Property, in collaboration with University Housing and Dining, coordinate an effort to reduce waste during residence hall move-out by educating residents and giving them the tools to recycle and donate as much as possible. Learn more about previous years' results here.

How You Can Help
