A zero-waste Big House

The athletic department is making significant changes to convert Michigan Stadium to a zero-waste facility by the 2017 season. Zero waste is an aspirational goal of diverting at least 90 percent of waste from the landfill by recycling and composting. The effort builds on the more than 20-year history of recycling game day waste at Michigan Stadium and aims to reduce waste sent to the landfill while increasing awareness of U-M’s sustainability culture.
