GameDay Recycling Challenge 

The GameDay Recycling Challenge is a nationwide competition among universities to reduce and recycle the waste generated at home football games. During each competition cycle, participating schools report recycling, compost and attendance data for at least one home football game. The challenge is administered by the College and University Recycling Coalition (CURC), RecycleMania, Keep America Beautiful and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WasteWise.

In order to increase our recycling numbers, we host a clean-up the day after the football game we choose for the competition. Student organizations who register to volunteer and have at least 10 members show up can earn a $250 stipend.
