Recycle at Carolina Football Games

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Thank you to all our fans who have helped us support the University of South Carolina's efforts in sustainability and being "green".

80,000+ people gathering for a football game can generate a lot of trash. Through our recycling efforts on site, 11,930 lbs. (5.97 tons) of mixed recyclables (aluminum, plastic, glass) were diverted from the landfill at the first two home football games.

Free recycling bags are provided by Facilities and Sustainable Carolina in the former Farmer's Market area. They can accept aluminum, plastic bottles, and glass, but no plastic cups (e.g. Solo cups) or food waste. Volunteers will there distributing bags this Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. and will be at every home game.
