Rush to Recycling

September 21, 2002

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 David Hess, secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and several recycling mascots 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.

This event marked the kickoff for the DEP's statewide "Rush to Recycling" campaign which challenges Pennsylvania colleges and universities to increase their campus recycling tonnage. The Beaver Stadium event was designed to encourage all Penn State football fans to take part in this contest by placing their recyclables in the proper containers located outside the stadium. Penn State fans will try to recycle more than 7.2 tons and beat the record set at a home game in 1996.
