Go Jackets! Go Green!

Since the Game Day Recycling program began in 2008, Georgia Tech has collected 96.9 tons of material — glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard and more — diverting these recyclables away from the landfill. With one game remaining in the 2012 season, organizers are hoping to reach the 100-ton mark following the Nov. 17 contest against the Duke Blue Devils.

If you are attending the game, take care to use the blue recycling bags or use the recycling containers both outside and inside the stadium. Every bottle and can counts!

Volunteers are still needed for the Nov. 17 game. Go to the Game Day Recycling website for more information and to sign up. You can also connect with Georgia Tech Game Day Recycling on Facebook.
