Football fans recycled enough to stretch from one end of county to the other

Date: September 12, 2018

During the Penn State versus Appalachian State Game, fans recycled more than six tons of plastic and glass bottles, as well as 2.5 tons of steel and aluminum cans.  That’s enough containers to stretch from one end of Centre County to another.

The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority (CCRRA) encourages you to continue recycling at your tailgates. Grab a blue bag for recycling and a clear bag for trash. You'll find bag dispensers in every tailgating field and parking lot.

Blue bags are for recyclables and limited to plastic and glass bottles and metal cans. Please place everything else in clear trash bags. Close full bags and leave at each tailgate spot for Physical Plant crews to collect the morning after each home game.  Clear bags will go to the landfill. Crews will deliver the blue bags to CCRRA for sorting and recycling.  

Remember: Blue bags are for bottles and cans only. Clear bags are for trash.

CCRRA asks you to please leave your tailgate area cleaner than you found it. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors all use these agricultural fields. For the safety of all users, it is essential that these fields are clean of debris.

The CCRRA thanks you for sorting your trash and recycling and keeping your tailgate areas clean.
