Question of the Week:

Other than throwing them in the trash, what can you do with packing peanuts at OSU?


Polystyrene peanuts are not easily recycled, however, they are completely reusable (we reuse them for shipping)! We accept both plastic and biodegradable peanuts.

Please either 1) bag or box them, mark ‘recycle’ and place next to a regularly serviced recycling bin, or 2) drop them off at the Property Services Building at 644 SW 13th St in Corvallis.
