We're a group of University of Utah students concerned with the environmental impact of our beloved Utah Utes football games. Read more to hear the story.
Recently, we were made aware that our beloved home, Rice-Eccles Stadium, produces over 8 TONS of garbage per game with a recycling program that just isn't working. While recycling bins are put out, they are either empty or contaminated with trash. The clean up crews who clean up the stands after the game also don't recycling and we would like to change this. We support decreasing the amount of waste produced at our football games and implement recycling into the cleaning contracts!

You can help by simply signing our petition or better yet, volunteer to help at the football games. It's THAT easy. By submitting to this form, you're pledging your support for implementing recycling into the stadium's cleaning contract and decreasing its environmental impact.
