Does anyone have information on waste produced at football games, both college and professional?

I’m writing a story on waste generated by football games, both by fans and teams. In my research I see the NFL has had green programs in place for 15 years, and multiple teams also are working to keep waste down. I was hoping maybe someone here has recent photos or information on how well those programs are going.

The 2010 result of this US Environmental Protection Agency program was 79 colleges and universities diverting over 500,000 pounds of waste. Read more here.
