Inspired by the exterior recycling initiative’s success at football games, composting bins are now accessible at UT’s DKR Stadium. This project enabled the poundage of composted materials to double to over 16,000 lbs. in one season, which saves over 140 cubic yards of landfill space. The Green Fee provided funding to purchase eight 26-gallon bins and two receptacles in the two club kitchens at DKR.
The initiative was so successful that compost bins will be present at 2014 football games, so be on the lookout at the next football game you attend!
