Penn State Tailgaters Recycled 16 Tons Of Plastic, Glass Bottles, Steel, Aluminum Cans At First Home Games

The Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority Wednesday reported Penn State tailgaters at the Kent State football game recycled 6 tons of plastic and glass bottles and just over 1 ton of steel and aluminum cans.
Tailgaters recycled 8.5 tons of bottles and cans at the first home game bringing the total to over 16 tons of recyclables so far this year.
The Authority and its partners implemented the Recycle Right initiative for home games at Penn State to make it easier for fans to do more recycling.
Fans are encouraged to grab a blue bag for recycling and a clear bag for trash. Bag dispensers are found in every tailgating field and parking lot.
Blue bags are for recyclables and limited to plastic and glass bottles and metal cans. Everything else should be placed in clear trash bags. Full bags should be secured closed and left at each tailgate spot for Physical Plant crews to collect the morning after each home game.  
Clear bags go to the landfill, while the blue bags are delivered to the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority for sorting and recycling.  
Remember: Blue bags are for bottles and cans only – Clear bags are for trash.
Fans are asked to leave their tailgate area cleaner than it was found. The fields are multi-use by students, faculty, staff, visitors, as well as agriculture. It is integral for the safety of all users that the fields are clean of debris.
The Authority would like to thank all fans for their efforts in sorting their trash and recycling, and keeping their tailgate areas clean.
