The Redskins have instituted a recycling program at FedExField and Redskins Park to help educate fans and promote recycling in their facilities.
Recycling bins have been set up in high-traffic areas throughout the stadium, including parking lots, and at the team facility. Patrons and staff are encouraged to throw recyclables in these bins.
The Redskins aim to promote recycling and a clean, healthy environment throughout the greater Washington, D.C., community.
