Recycling efforts make a difference

OSU in Tulsa has recycled almost 28 tons of paper this year, equaling approximately 112 barrels of oil, 117,600 kilowatt hours of energy and enough energy to heat and air-condition the average North American home for almost 168 months. Each OSU office and classroom should have a cardboard box for paper recycling. If you need a container, call (918) 594-8200 or contact Tulsa.helpdesk@okstate.edu. All white paper, envelopes, shredded paper, computer paper, colored paper, glossy paper, manila folders, carbonless forms, index cards, junk mail, fax paper and magazines can be recycled.
