ResLife Move In Captured 43.25 Tons of Cardboard

Wednesday, September 7 2016

About 43.25 tons of cardboard were collected this past August during ResLife Move-in days! This is more than double the amount of carboard students and volunteers recycled at move-in during the fall of 2015. 

Congratulations to ResLife residents, staff, moms & dads, FM staff, and of course, the Activate volunteers. Our collective effort diverted this valuable resource from a dead-end existence in a landfill to new life as new products. The cardboard boxes we recycle reincarnate as paper bags, paperboard packaging (like cereal boxes), and new corrugated cardboard boxes. Res Life is truly contributing to a sustainable OSU.
