Game Day Recycling
Help Wildcats go green as they wear purple. Game Day Recycling volunteers help collect and sort recyclable materials at home football games. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and cardboard are collected from both tailgates and the stadium are collected by volunteers and then sorted at the K-State Recycling facility.

Sustainability in the Classroom
