Fans attending Saturday's Nebraska men's basketball game against Iowa and Tuesday's women's basketball game against Minnesota will be a part of a special "Experience a Green Arena" promotion at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The promotion will include the following:
Pinnacle Bank Arena was designed and built to be one of the most sustainable arenas in the country, with a high rate of recycling (up to 75 percent of all waste) and a low use of both energy and water. The City of Lincoln, Husker Athletics and SMG received a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust to develop a state of the art recycling program for the arena. Funding has been used to purchase and install special dual-use receptacles for both recycling and trash on all concourses.
More information on recycling is available at recycle.lincoln.ne.gov.
