Fans Encouraged to be Environmentally Friendly
Fans attending Penn State football games are asked to do their part to keep the University clean. Blue and black plastic bags can be found in the parking lots. Please use the blue plastic bags for recyclable materials and the black plastic bags for those items that are trash.

The game day parking areas are used other days of the week for parking, Intramural Fields, and pastures. Managing waste helps keep costs lower, is good for the environment and keeps playing fields safe.
