Game Day Recycling


About the Program

Football games bring thousands of fans onto campus and generate tons of trash. Since 2008, Georgia Tech's Game Day Recycling program makes it convenient for fans to recycle, whether they are tailgating, walking through the campus, or inside the Stadium watching the game. The success of the Game Day Recycling program hinges on the active participation of everyone attending home football games.
