Home opener encourages zero waste efforts
Date: September 11, 2013
A group of students in the Student Environmental Coalition helped fans at the football home opener, in Lubbers Stadium September 7, compost and recycle their waste.
More than 600 pounds of compostable and recyclable materials were collected, which diverted 79 percent of the total materials from the waste stream.
The Zero Waste Initiative is part of an ongoing effort to recycle and compost as much waste as possible at large events on campus. The initiative is organized by the Sustainable Community Development Initiative, Athletics Department, Facilities Services, Office of Student Life and Campus Dining’s Green Team.
Volunteers are needed to help at the remaining home football games this season.
Students, faculty and staff members who are interested can contact Kimberly Schoetzow in SCDI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
