Michigan Stadium’s Zero Waste Program
Chalk up another win for Ann Arbor sustainability! Through signage, composting and recycling, Michigan Stadium conquered big zero-waste goals. During the 2017 season, the University of Michigan prevented loads and loads of junk from getting to the landfill, reaching a diversion rate of 88.17 percent! Michigan Stadium’s Zero Waste Program kicks butt!
Zero Waste at Michigan Stadium
What was so different about the 2017 season?
- Most food and beverage containers were compostable.
- Recyclable and reusable options such as souvenir concession were offered in addition to recyclable water bottles and containers.
- New signage was placed on walls and on every waste bin to inform where to dispose each type of waste item.
After each home game, a cleanup crew comes in to sort the remaining waste items by compost, recycling, or landfill before it’s all hauled off to its respective centers.
