Two Lafayette student eco-reps stand with the Lafayette leopard to highlight proper recycling signsAt the Lafayette vs. Navy basketball game, Lafayette will be participating in Game Day Challenge against schools across the nation. This is a competition aimed at reducing waste at college sporting events and your help is needed! Compost bins will be available with green bags for food waste. Questions about recycling and compost? Ask the student volunteers in green vests!

Beyond Game Day Challenge there are many ways you can reduce waste at Kirby Sport Center and Fisher Stadium.

Here are a few tips from the Office of Sustainability:
-At Lafayette, we aim for a Zero Waste Stadium! As a fan, you can help us achieve that goal by reducing the disposable items you bring or buy, reusing cups, trays and utensils, and recycling cans and bottles in the blue bins.
-Inside the arena, trash and recycling spots are located by concessions and around the court. Make sure to think before you throw and read the signage carefully.
-We have single stream recycling which means all empty plastic bottles, aluminum, paper, and cardboard can go in the same blue bin.
-When in doubt, throw it out! Recycling that is contaminated with food or liquids may not be accepted at the sorting facility. Help us keep the stadium clean and reduce waste by using the correct bins.
-Remember at the basketball game (7 p.m. Wed., Feb. 1)  Lafayette will be participating in Game Day Challenge against schools across the nation to decrease our waste!
-Thank you for helping us reduce waste at our sporting events! Go Pards!
