Wolverines Recycle!

Michigan Football
Waste Management Services recycles cardboard and other recyclables collected from vendors at the Stadium during games. You'll be surprised what happens when Wolverines Recycle!

Pop and water bottles are also collected at the Stadium each game. Most people don't realize that when they recycle beverage containers that energy and water is saved by not using raw materials or energy to produce new products. Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic beverage bottles every hour...don't be one of them!

Game Update

At the November 30th game against OSU , fans recycled almost tons of material!
