Be More, Do More

Our Oakwood Cares program partners with community initiatives, bringing the Oakwood Team together with our residents to provide resources that support families and sustainability.

Our purpose is to create the perfect place to call home.


Oakwood is committed to leading the way in sustainable living practices. As the largest third-party property management company in Central Ohio and beyond, we aim to make a big impact through our industry-leading sustainability efforts – and inspire our partners, team members, and residents to do the same.

We focus our sustainability efforts in three key areas: waste reduction, reducing our carbon footprint, and simplifying a sustainable lifestyle.

Our purpose is to create the perfect place to call home, which means taking action now to invest in a more sustainable future for our communities.

Simplifying A Sustainable Lifestyle

Designed with convenience and accessibility in mind, our recycling program ensures that residents can actively participate in reducing waste without any hassle. Residents place their recyclables on their doorstep for weekly collection. Our team takes care of the rest.
