Ohio University has been awarded a recycling grant of roughly $130,000 from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to improve organic waste collection on campus. Additional university funds will add to the grant to assist the university’s organics project.
The grant will be used to install waste bins in the university’s Convocation Center with labels that will help students separate recyclables from food scraps and general landfill items.
