Who are the Waste Watchers?

Waste Watchers is a joint group between Campus Recycling and the Student Sustainability Initiative whose mission is to engage students and the community in waste reduction at OSU by providing educational programming, meaningful opportunities for action, and empowerment of future leaders.

You can become a Waste Watcher too by volunteering with us (see opportunities below)! Meet some of our volunteers in this video!
