The bins are located outside of the Dean of Students Office on the second floor of the Stafford Center (Room 214). Weatherford’s ACE Hardware Store and manager Troy Kerth donated the bins.

Recycling at SWOSU has taken another step forward thanks to several organizations on the Weatherford campus and a local business.

Environmentally-friendly bins with lids are now located outside of the Dean of Students Office on the second floor of the Stafford Center (Room 214). Making possible the new bins are the President’s Leadership Class, Collegiate Activities Board and Weatherford’s ACE Hardware Store with manager Troy Kerth.  

Cindy Dougherty, dean of students at SWOSU, said CAB had been using cardboard boxes but the new bins will be more attractive.  She said the students love recycling efforts on the SWOSU campus.

Three PLC students—Lauren Kehl, Taler Sawatzky and Taylor Boyd—made the letters and recycle signs and did all the application work on the bins.

Dougherty said the Weatherford ACE Store has also helped SWOSU continue to “go greener”  with assistance at the CAB organic farm located at the Rader Park rodeo grounds.
