How much trash is left behind tailgaters from football games?



  1. 0 Votes

    It really does vary from team to team because some facilities have more room for tailgaters than others, but it’s safe to say that there is a lot of trash left behind after every game. Here is a tally from a recent University of Missouri football game, where the city of Columbia, MO had volunteers collect trash and recyclables after a game:

    – 2.01 tons of containers collected.
    – Aluminum: 523 pounds or 19,829 cans
    – Glass: 3,226 pounds or 7,192 bottles
    – Plastic: 261 pounds or 5,540 bottles
    – There were another 3,146 pounds of plastic collected inside the stadium by the cleaning crew.
