The article presents information on how the University of California-Davis has successfully made Aggie Stadium, the first zero-waste college stadium in the U.S. Concessions director Anne Pierson partnered with Sodexo, the school's R4 Recycling program and Jepson Prairie Organics, a local composting facility, to help Aggie Stadium make the conversion. It began by looking at the concessions menu and determining what packaging was biodegradable and nonbiodegradable.
