Go Jackets! Go Green!
Since the Game Day Recycling program began in 2008, Georgia Tech has collected 96.9 tons of material — glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard and more — diverting these recyclables away from the landfill. With one game remaining in the 2012 season, organizers are hoping to reach the 100-ton mark following the Nov. 17 contest against the Duke Blue Devils.
If you are attending the game, take care to use the blue recycling bags or use the recycling containers both outside and inside the stadium. Every bottle and can counts!
The hard work of Georgia Tech fans has resulted in a record-breaking season off the field.

Georgia Tech fans and game day recycling volunteers worked hard to exceed the goal.
The Georgia Tech Athletic Association is installing photocells and solar breakers to decrease the amount of energy used by Bobby Dodd stadium's lights during the day. The Technique reports how the work of students made this switch possible.
