If a pug can recycle, so can you! Remember to recycle as much as you can! SUNY Oswego tries to make it easy by having 3 separate kinds of garbage: paper, plastics and waste! In your dorm rooms, or at your off campus house remember to follow that simple garbage separation! Plastics in one bin, paper/cardboard in another, and waste in a separate can! This little bit of recycling can help improve the earth, as well as make reusable products out of recyclable goods!
