TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Some University of Arizona students attending the Wildcats’ home game Saturday night against the Utah Utes will have more than football on their minds.

Approximately 100 students will be working to help the university compete in a Pacific-12 Conference competition for achieving high recycling and composting levels of waste produced at home games, thereby keeping it out of landfills.

Ben Champion, director of the university Office of Sustainability, calls the event an incredible opportunity to engage a large audience in making a significant environmental impact.

Sustainability program coordinator Julia Rudnick says there will be more than 40 waste stations throughout Arizona Stadium. She says a large part of outreach efforts are aimed at engaging the student section before, during and after the game.
