Starting from Scratch: Greening Your Game Day--The Collegiate Football Sustainable Materials Management Toolkit. Version 1.0
Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education
The "Collegiate Football Sustainable Materials Management Toolkit" was researched by student interns in the Virginia Tech Office of Energy & Sustainability, developed in collaboration with the US EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) and a national panel of technical experts from universities across the nation, and driven forward by CURC (College and University Recycling Coalition), AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education), and Keep America Beautiful, critical national sustainability organizations. The intent of this document is to provide a framework for developing a game day program from scratch but also a road map for continually improving an existing program. The technical experts panel had representatives from the US EPA, AASHE, CURC, The Ohio State University, Penn State, PSSI/Stanford Recycling, University of Colorado Boulder, and Wake Forest University. Without the support of all parties involved, this toolkit would not have been able to be completed. This toolkit provides a guide for institutions of higher education to implement or improve collegiate game day recycling and sustainability efforts. It provides an overview of strategies for the implementation and development of a college game day operation. It includes case studies of Technical Experts Panel participant's programs and a list of best practices for all areas of game day operations to implement or improve a sustainable materials management program. Appended are: (1) Best Practices List by Game Day Logistics Section; and (2) Works Cited. [This toolkit was produced in collaboration between Virginia Tech Office of Energy & Sustainability, College and University Recycling Coalition (CURC), and Keep America Beautiful.]
