We need recycling bins on athletic fields! It’s better for the environment, these bottles can make the campus money and therefore the bins will pay for themselves (note that the water-refilling machines on water fountains were paid for by the proceeds of the school’s recycled bottles), and this will make our athletic fields appear and actually be cleaner, impressing our guests and opponents. Crazy that this still isn’t a thing!

A.  Recycling containers have been tried in the past as well as a carry-in/carry-out trial on our athletic fields. Unfortunately the recycling containers become mixed with trash which the recycling companies will not accept.  We will review options for recycling containers at the various concession areas and request the concession folks look after them and recycle as part of their concession sales.
