Recycling & Waste

Recycling at Denison

Denison has a long legacy of recycling. Started in 1984, the Denison University Recycling Program is still active on campus and works to promote recycling and waste reduction. Around campus, recycling receptacles are available in the campus commons, academic buildings, and behind dormitories.

In 2004, Denison opened the Denison University and Granville Community Recycling Center located on Pearl St. in Granville, Ohio.
