Good Sports Always Recycle™ is the nation's largest stadium recycling program, sponsored by Eastman, Food City and Waste Connections in conjunction with the University of Tennessee.
GSAR encourages Big Orange fans to reduce their footprint and recycle their waste both inside and outside the stadium by placing items in the designated bins instead of in the trash. UT has set a goal to get to “zero waste” at games by the end of the 2015-2016 football season.
In addition to the on-campus project, GSAR also encourages and honors schools across Tennessee for their efforts in bringing environmental programs into their schools and communities. Each year since 1993, GSAR has recognized schools for their environmental programs by inviting school representatives to a UT home game, where they are recognized on-field, during a pre-game ceremony.
