New Garbage and Recycling Program Kicks off at University of Georgia Season Opener
ATHENS, Ga. - Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., a regional integrated environmental services company, along with the University of Georgia, will officially kick off the Committed to a Clean and Green G initiative at Saturday's season opener against Buffalo.
Bulldog fans and guests will see more than 2,400 cardboard boxes at each home game, provided by Advanced Disposal, throughout the tailgate areas and on the way to Sanford Stadium to be used for either garbage or recycling. The following emptied items can be placed in the boxes marked "recycling only:" soda cans, glass bottles, cardboard and plastic bottles. Garbage must be placed in the trash boxes only - not the recycling boxes.
"Advanced Disposal wants to help clean up the competition while keeping the University of Georgia looking its best all season long," said Advanced Disposal Chief Marketing Officer Mary O'Brien. "We want every fan to do his or her part by throwing away all garbage and recycling in to the appropriate Advanced Disposal event boxes, which be located all over campus and the tailgate areas at every Bulldog home game."
As a reminder, the following items cannot be recycled and thus should not be placed in the recycling only boxes: Styrofoam containers, food waste, plastic plates and utensils or paper towels and napkins.
"Advanced Disposal has proven to be an integral part of our game day effort to keep the University of Georgia campus clean," said Matt Brachowski, assistant athletic director for event management, University of Georgia. "And now with their recent commitment toward our overall recycling effort inside and outside Sanford Stadium, we are in an even better position to preserve the beautiful grounds that makes the UGA campus so special."
