Rush to recycle


A significant amount of recyclables was collected by 88 student volunteers at Beaver Stadium after Saturday's football game against Louisiana Tech. The students were joined by several recycling mascots, above, for the kickoff of a "Rush to Recycling" campaign. Through the campaign, the University has been challenged to increase the amount of recycled material collected at the games and on campus. Below, one of several recycling mascots mugs for the camera. The mascots roamed the stands offering encouragement to the volunteers as they collected the recyclables, and then posed with the volunteers and the bags of recyclables they collected.



David Hess, secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, spoke to the volunteers before they hit the stands to collect the recyclables, above. Behind Hess wearing sunglasses is Al Matyasovsky, supervisor of central support services in the Office of Physical Plant. Below, students representing a number of organizations including fraternities, sororities and other service organizations, as well as individual volunteers, fan out to collect the recyclable trash left behind by fans at the Penn State- Louisiana Tech football game Sept. 21.
