EPA Game Day Challenge

The Game Day Challenge is a friendly competition among over 70 colleges and universities across the United States to score the most recycling and waste reduction during football games. The Game Day Challenge is an initiative of the US EPA's Wastewise program.

During the first year of the national competition in 2009, Colorado won three of the five Game Day Challenge categories including total diversion rate (78%), greenhouse gas reductions (23.6 tons), and per capital composting.

The following report summarizes the activities surrounding the campus’ zero waste efforts during the CU-Oregon football game at Folsom Field on on Oct. 22, 2011. It is intended to demonstrate and highlight our successes as well as our challenges and opportunities moving forward.  To view the report, click here.
