The morning of a home game on campus is a buzz with activity—everyone is moving with a purpose to set-up and get ready for thousands of visitors to our campus to cheer on the Jackets. One important group in the thick of the preparations is Georgia Tech Game Day Recycling, a part of the Office of Solid Waste Management & Recycling (OSWMR). For the past 10 years GT’s Game Day Recycling has diverted over 220 tons of materials from the landfill!

Composting allows nature to take its course, degrading organic materials and returning the nutrients back to the Earth. Composting is a great way to avoid sending materials to the landfill. In fact, in 2014, an estimated 2.4 million tons of organic materials were diverted from landfills due to composting.
