TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The traditional gift for a 10th anniversary is aluminum, which is fitting as Florida State University celebrates 10 years of its Garnet & Gold Goes Green (GGGG or G4) game day recycling program at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Since its inception, the program has collected more than 145 tons of recyclable material cans, bottles, and cardboard from its game day activities. It surpassed the 100-ton mark during third game of the 2012 football season. In addition, it has expanded into other large campus events, ranging from Parents Weekend to Dance Marathon, and it has twice provided recycling services to the ESPN Game Day crew on visits to Doak Campbell Stadium.

“Throughout this football season, we hope fans will celebrate with us by disposing of cans and bottles in the correct bins inside and outside of Doak Campbell Stadium, or by setting up their own recycling stations in tailgate areas we’ll be sure these items are collected,” said Elizabeth Swiman, director of Campus Sustainability.
