LOGAN, Utah - In conjunction with the Students for Sustainability Club on campus, Utah State University Athletics is competing in the National Game Day Challenge as they collect recyclable materials outside Romney Stadium during Friday's game against BYU.
Students will give tailgating fans recycling bags that can be filled with recyclables and left at their tailgating site. Sustainability Club members will pick up the bags and take it to the recycling center on campus.
The goal of the Game Day Challenge is to increase recycling and composting at college football games. More than just a competition, the Game Day Challenge is an opportunity for colleges and universities to demonstrate to students and team supporters that recycling and reducing waste are not limited to the home or office.
As part of the challenge, schools across the nation collect cans and bottles, cardboard, food waste and more from the tailgate areas, stadium seating and concessions during at least one regular season home football game. Schools will measure and report their results along with game attendance to be ranked in five categories.
In addition to the Students for Sustainability volunteers collecting recyclables from the pre-game tailgaters at the BYU-USU home game, fans attending the game will have the opportunity to recycle inside Romney Stadium with recycling bins donated by Coca-Cola for the 2013 season.
The Game Day Challenge is administered by the College & University Recycling Coalition, Keep America Beautiful and RecycleMania, Inc., with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
