Leaving your bike behind? A bike drop program with Campus Safety at Cascades Hall is TBD for 2023. In the past, OSU would refurbish abandoned bikes for resale, the goal being to offer students affordable, ready-to-ride bikes at the beginning of next school year. Learn more here

As usual, all cardboard needs to be taken outside. 

Place other accepted recyclables in the Bottles & Cans and Paper containers inside your hall receptacles, including extra large carts added in week 10, located on the ground floor in most halls (floor 2 in Halsell and upper floors in the ILLC; no changes to recycling in The Gem or Orchard Court). 

Any items that can’t be donated or recycled should be taken to the outside dumpster/compactor. If your hall has an extra large dumpster placed at it during the move out period, you are welcome to use it.
