DEPARTMENT FEATURES

Campus Recycling’s sponsored student club, the Waste Watchers, sponsors once-per-quarter Repair Fairs, at which volunteers help attendees fix their broken items and D.I.Y. demonstrations are offered on a variety of topics. The event helps the community save money, gain skills, and reduce waste. Learn more on their website.

Repair Fair

To encourage sustainability and reduce department expenses, Surplus Property has a free office supply program that allows OSU departments to acquire office supplies and housewares priced at $5 or less for free, with a limit of $20 per visit. Delivery of these items are still subject to a fee. Learn more on their website.

Office Supplies

In response to OSU’s waste hauler, Republic Services, changing their acceptance policy of materials collected for composting, Campus Recycling has updated campus compost guidelines, effective September 1, 2019. These changes are not only due to complications with serving ware properly degrading at the Pacific Region Compost Facility, but also the environmental and economic sustainability of the products themselves. This is part of a larger movement across Oregon to move away from composting service ware.
