Man composting

Stanford Stadium is upping its sustainability game this year! Football season starts on August 31, and with it comes new ways to compost and recycle on game days. First, look out for central waste stations in tailgate areas. These will be labeled as "Zero Waste Zones." To help you go zero waste, 3 bags will be provided: green bags for compost, clear bags for recyclables, and black bags for all other trash—then dispose of it in the correct central dumpster. These bag sets will be provided to fans in most lots, and they’ll be available at all Guest Services tents.

Inside the stadium, look for more compostable items, including all compostable cups, lids, and straws for your beverages! If you're not sure what goes where, be sure to check out the signs on the waste bins. To help out with sustainability initiatives at any games, email
