Football Fans Lead the Way With Composting and More

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - 12:47pm

Kidd Brewer Stadium is going greener: Zero Waste is Our Goal!

Athletics is partnering with the Physical Plant and Office of Sustainability to develop a zero waste stadium plan, being implemented in the 2014 football season.  

What's new?

  • Composting(!) and Recycling Stations Manned by Volunteers
  • Concessionaire products that are compostable or recyclable
  • Condiment areas will have bulk condiment dispensers to reduce packaging waste

And what continues...

  • Tailgater recycling will also be encouraged by the distribution and pick up of recycling bags

Composting food scraps will be a new concept for game goers.  All recycling/compost stations will have ample signage and volunteers at each location to ensure attendees are educated and aware of which container to use when discarding their waste.  The clean up of the stadium post game will also work to separate waste for recycling or composting.

Appstate has a "Zero Waste" by 2022 committment.  Mountaineers are leading the way by cleaning up waste in the stadium.  Thank you football fans.
