Green Team Recycles at Autzen

EUGENE, Ore. — Thousands of Ducks fans will be donning the colors green and yellow this weekend, but one group plans to emphasize the color green over yellow.

The Green Team, a student-run organization, plans to help fans keep their stadium clean and green.

One new thing this year is when fans head into the parking lot, they get a bag. If you fill the bag with recyclables, they’ll pick it up at your trunk and recycle it for you.

“We’re going to always continue to do as much as we can to be sustainable here. It’s part of the culture of the University of Oregon, part of the culture of the state, and we know it’s something very near and dear to the heart’s of our fans,” said Greg Pintens, Senior Athletic Director.

Their recycling rate has increased by more than 20 percent in the last four years.
