Stanwood Youth Football

A BIG THANK YOU

to the Stanwood Youth Football League for caring about the Earth!


Football games are a great collection place for collecting a variety of “would be garbage”.    We all don’t realize that our garbage can earn points!

Points for football is earned through Energy Bar Wrappers, Snack Bags, Candy Wrappers.

A recycle station is provided to help keep the Earth cleaner with the following collection receptacles:

  1. Compost
  2. Aluminum Cans, Foil, Pans
  3. Plastics:  Hard, Flexible
  4. Styrofoam
  5. Clean Paper, Glass, Cardboard
  6. Caps & Straws
Recycling Station
Recycling Station at Stanwood Middle School Spartan Football Games

A Rinsing bin is used by the attendant to clean coffee cups, yogurt containers, etc that would have been tossed in the garbage.

On the average 6 bags of Recycleable items are taken away from an entire game day.  Yet only 1/2 a bag of garbage actually goes to the waste dumpster!

Often someone walks up to the station and says it’s all garbage….yet 90% can be sorted into the recycle containers.  I think we are all learning something new!

Thanks to the Stanwood Youth Football staff for the opportunity to set up a recycle station and working together to make the world a better place.

The feedback has been fantastic and very thankful.

GO SPARTANS!
