Folsom Field zero-waste program announced

On Aug. 5, the university announced "Ralphie's Green Stampede" zero-waste and carbon-reduction program at Folsom Field. The program's goal is to move toward zero-waste at Folsom Field during the football season and invest in local carbon-reduction projects to match energy used to power the stadium, for team travel and other football-related energy use. It is estimated that at least 90 percent of waste generated at Folsom Field this year will be recycled or composted. For more information, see the press release.
