As part of Coca-Cola Consolidated’s Refresh, Recycle, Renew campaign, Republic, the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium partnered together with Circular Solutions Advisors and Food Loops to get every bottle and can back from games and practices at these venues during the tournament. This effort resulted in 98 percent of all bottles and cans (117,596 cans/3.3 tons) consumed being made into new bottles and cans. All waste, including food, was captured at the championship game held at Lucas Oil Stadium with 70 percent of all waste (2.90 tons) being diverted from the landfill.
