  • Using containers provided by ODNR, collections sites are set up throughout the stadium concourses, tailgate area, and sky boxes of the stadium;
  • Volunteers distribute green recycling bags to tailgaters and collect them throughout the game
  • An all-time single game high weight of 8258 pounds (4.2 tons!) was achieved during Homecoming, October 15, 2011
