Each Football season, WKU is participates in the GameDay Recycling Challenge - a friendly-but-fierce national recycling competition against other colleges & universities.   


In the 2019 football season,  we collected over 11,900 lbs. of plastic bottles, aluminum cans, paper products, glass and cardboard from the stadium and tailgate area. Way to go, Hilltoppers!


In addition to collecting recyclables throughout the game in the stadium, WKU Fraternities compete against one another in their own recycling competition on game days. Each fraternity is given a custom recycling bin to collect their materials. In 2019, WKU Greeks recycled 343.7 pounds combined!
