Rethink Waste Athletics

We're big fans of reducing waste and so is our Athletics Department. Each year the Office for Sustainability, Athletics, and Custodial and Environmental Services work together to host a Rethink Waste football and basketball game. These games feature composting, increased recycling, special signage, and user education about what can and cannot be recycled or composted. Thanks to the work of dozens of dedicated volunteers educating game attendees, we're able to achieve exceptional landfill diversion rates at these games and get closer to meeting the University's goal of 75% waste diversion from the landfill by 2025.
