Tailgate Waste Diversion Education

USC Sustainability and Facilities Management Services are partnering to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill on campus during football tailgates.  Student facilitators will educate tailgaters on how to sort their waste and divert recyclable and compostable materials from the waste stream, creating a more sustainable and aesthetic game day experience for all Trojan football fans.
