Zero Waste at Michigan Stadium

The University of Michigan Athletic Department is striving toward zero waste at Michigan Stadium since 2018. Fans will see signage in Michigan Stadium directing them to containers for both recyclable and compostable material. Nearly all the materials purchased in Michigan Stadium can be recycled or composted. The job of fans is to make sure waste gets into the proper bin. All recyclable materials should be placed in bins with blue bags and labels, while all compostable materials should be placed in bins with brown bags and labels.

A zero waste Michigan Stadium supports U-M's deep commitment to sustainability in education, research and operations known as Planet Blue. It directly impacts the university's 2025 sustainability goals, specifically the goals to reduce waste sent to landfills by 40 percent and to strengthen the culture of sustainability on campus. Visit the Zero Waste at Michigan Stadium page for more information.
