Green Grove Initiative – Statistics

This graph illustrates the amount of waste generated and the amount of recyclables collected in the past five football seasons.  We are working towards improving our number of recyclables for 2014 season by even more. Please get involved and help us reach our goals of increasing recyclables and decreasing waste.

The Athletic Department, Associated Student Body, Landscape Services, Oxford Recycling and the Office of Sustainability are determined to improve our diversion rate for the 2014 football season.    We will be announcing the dates of the EPA Game Day Challenge in which we will need the entire Ole Miss community’s support in reaching 5% diversion of grove waste and 10% diversion of stadium waste.  With the implementation of mesh bags, green grove ambassadors, and more recycling bins outside of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, we believe this is an attainable goal.

Go Green By Damn!
