Recycling keeps trash out of landfills

Fall means that football season and tailgating are in full swing. It also means that trash is in abundance. But Scrappy, below, knows what to do with it.

So far this year, more than 63 bags of aluminum, cardboard and plastic at an average of 25 pounds each have been collected at Mean Green Village and Fouts Field by volunteers. That’s a total of about 1,575 pounds of trash that will not go into a landfill.

The plastic and aluminum are collected and sorted at the Recycling Warehouse. The aluminum is sold to Fulton’s Recycling in Denton. The plastic is picked up twice weekly by Balcones Recycling.

Tips for greener tailgating:

The next tailgating opportunities at Fouts Field are Oct. 9, when the Mean Green play Arkansas State during Family Weekend, and Oct. 16 versus Florida International, which is Homecoming. Home games also are Nov. 6 versus Troy and Nov. 27, the last game at Fouts Field, versus Kansas State.
