Pac-12 Zero Waste Challenge

Office of Sustainability
October 20, 2017

The University of Arizona will compete in the Pac-12 Zero Waste Challenge again and we need our fans and guests to help us divert more waste from the landfill.

On Oct. 28, the Wildcats will duke it out on the field this Homecoming game against Washington State. During tailgating, the game and after the event, UA Athletics, the Office of Sustainability, Greening the Game, Students for Sustainability, Compost Cats, Green Team, Facilities Management, Zona Zoo and the UA Student Unions will work together to participate in the Pac-12 Zero Waste Challenge.

Sustainable UA will set up green stations, which include labeled containers for compostable materials, trash and recyclables. The team will be out interacting with the public encouraging them to participate in our diversion efforts, as well as sharing campus recycling and compost efforts.

Help us win the Pac-12 Zero Waste Competition, keep our athletic events green and continue to be leaders in sustainability. During the game and tailgating, we will have waste diversion stations everywhere, as well as spirited student teams ready to assist you. To do your part, just bring your trash to a green station conveniently located around the stadium. We will do the rest so you can enjoy cheering on your Wildcats!
