This graphic contains waste totals, volunteer turn out, and the diversion rate of the 2016 football season. We’ve made great strides increasing our diversion rate!

Statistics from the 2016 football season.

The Office of Sustainability, Oxford Recycling, Landscape Services, Associated Student Body, and Athletic Department are determined to improve our diversion rate for the 2017 football season. We will continue to increase our diversion rate each year! With the implementation of mesh bags, Green Grove Ambassadors, and more recycling bins, we believe this is an attainable goal.

Go Green By Damn!
