Recycle

The WE Recycle program makes it easy. Collect cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles in a WE Recycle bag. Tie the bag, leave it on the ground and WE Recycle will pick it up after the game.

Share the ride

Carpool or take transit to the tailgating lot.

Reduce Use of Foam and Plastic

If reusable plates, cups and cutlery aren't an option, opt for paper products over plastic and foam. Paper tends to have a smaller environmental impact.
