Since 2015, SIU Sustainability has been partnering with SIU Athletics to promote recycling to our football game day tailgaters. In 2018, we expanded our promotion into the stadium.
We rely on our partnerships with PSO Grounds, PSO Building Services, and our Saluki Green Action Team volunteers to support this initiative.
Here's a summary of our 2018 program:
Congratulations, Saluki fans, you have helped us to divert a total of 6540 pounds of recyclables from the landfill during the 2018 football season!
