The Diddle/Smith Recycling Program engages student and community organizations through cleaning Diddle Arena or Smith Stadium after each home game; Football and Men's and Women's basketball. Volunteers collect recyclables and landfilled waste left behind by the fans, pour liquids from beverage containers, sweep, mop, sanitize hard seats and bleachers, wipe down all handrails, scrape sticky residue, and remove all recycling and landfilled waste from the building. In exchange for cleaning the space, organizations receive funding for their organization or philanthropy of choice, and volunteers earn 3-5 service hours.

WKU Football/Smith Stadium - $1,000
Partial Stadium Clean-up - $750
