The Ohio State University at Marion

Marion Campus Zero Waste Initiative

One recycling container for all recyclable items, look for the All-In-One sticker or placard on recycling receptacles in campus offices, hallways, and walkways on the Marion campus.

The Ohio State University and Marion Technical College, in conjuction with The Marion Campus Physical Facilities Dept. applaud the continued efforts of the campus community to recycle.

In summer 2011, the campus began a single-stream recycling program where paper, plastics, glass, and aluminum can be placed in the same recycling container.
