Slash the Trash Waste Audit Results

Homecoming Waste AuditThe Slash the Trash event at the Skydome on homecoming weekend was a huge success. We had over 20 volunteers come out to sort through waste generated by the Homecoming game and tailgating activities. Here is what we found:

Cardboard: 423 lbs.
Landfill: 1285 lbs.
Food Waste: 340 lbs.
Recycling: 433 lbs.
Pepsi Cups: 133 lbs.
Glass: 133 lbs.
Bathroom: 50 lbs.
Liquid: 278 lbs.

All the waste adds up to 3,072 total pounds! Here are the percentages:

13.77% Carboard
41.83% Landfill
11.07% Food Waste
14.10% Recycling
4.33% Pepsi Cups
4.23% Glass
1.63% Bathroom
9.05% Liquid

In total, we diverted 986 pounds from the landfill into recycling! That’s 32.1%!

All of this information will serve as our baseline for future waste reduction at football games. Check out photos from the event on the Green NAU facebook page.
