LSU led the nation in recycling during the college football season, with 86,400 pounds.
The results of the GameDay Recycling Challenge show that LSU also led the Southeastern Conference in tons recycled per capita.
“Campus Sustainability is extremely excited that LSU won the 2015 EPA GameDay Challenge, and we believe our victory can be attributed to the hard work of our student, faculty and staff volunteers, as well as our efforts to engage the entire campus community in recycling,” said Tammy Millican, assistant director for facility and property oversight.
Ninety-nine colleges and universities participated in the recycling challenge, which tries to get fans to reduce their game-day waste, while composting and recycling more.
The rankings were based on the quantity of recyclables, food organics and other materials diverted from the landfill at college football stadiums and tailgating areas.
