In 2022, Eastman set a world record for the World's Largest College Recycling Event with the University of Tennessee's “Good Sports Always Give Back” program by recycling 38,452 pounds of game day waste. This year, Eastman and UT challenged the University of Michigan, pitting Neyland Stadium against The Big House. Tennessee fans competed to recycle the most game day waste in a single day, resulting in an impressive 44,950 pounds of waste recycled.

Their record included recycling plastic, aluminum, paper, cardboard, wooden pallets, composting and food donations. This collective effort is making a significant impact by keeping materials out of landfills and contributing to a greener, cleaner future.

Fans from both schools made history by diverting a combined 85,211 pounds of game day waste from landfills. Over 200,000 people came together to emphasize the power of unity and environmental responsibility. Join us in celebrating this incredible journey toward a more sustainable tomorrow.
