SEATTLE - Sports fans can step up their green game the next time you take in a Husky football or basketball game.

The University of Washington Athletic Department has teamed up with Pacific Cascade Corporation to install dozens of GreenDrop Recycling Stations throughout Alaska Airlines Arena and Husky Stadium.

The recycling stations will help sports guests self-sort recyclable and compostable items - ultimately reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill.

The UW Athletic Department is a member of the Green Sports Alliance - designed to promote green initiatives at sporting events.

UW ordered a total of 169 recycling stations for both sporting venues.

More information about UW's recycling station installations can be found online.
