After the football teamas upset
lasa Saturday, mare than 100,000
fans walked away fram Michigan
Stadium with their hopes for a
national championship completely
destroyed.
Many of them managed to leave
somethinghbehind - trash.
So who's stuck cleaning up the
mess in and around the nation's
largest football stadium after each
game?
High school students and their
parents. Between 150 and 250 high
schoolers and parents clean up
after the maize and blue-clad fans
after each goome, said Chris Ehmsan,
the facilities supervisor at Michi-
gan Stadium.
The University has contracted
with Ann Arbor's Father Gabriel
Richard High School for mare than
20 years.
Students from the school make
their way to the Big House every

Sunday after a home game at 7 a.m.
to pick up crash, Ehman said.
As part of the deal, the Univer-
sity pays the high school about
$30,000 a year, which the school
uses to fund its athletic pro-
gramns.
The high school requires each of
its student-athletes to sweep dawn
the stairwells of each of the stadi-
um's 44 sections, Ehman said.
The local Hoy Scouts also help in
the process, cleaning up whatever
garbage tailgaters leave behind in
the parking lots.
Hut Ehman says their job is a bit
"Helieve it or not, the tailgaters
actually do a pretty good job of
cleaning up after themselves," he
said.
Members of Ehman's mainte-
nance staff and employees from the
Athletic Department also pitch in,
picking up the litter football spec-

tators leave.
Everyone's workload becomes
heavier after the more important
games on the schedule.
According to 2006 statistics
provided by Waste Management
Services, fans littered most during
the Michigan State and Wisconsin
games.
With more than 11,000 fans
at each contest, those two games
were the most attended last sea-
The statistics show that fans
left an average of just over 17
tons of recyclable waste at each
game.
Altogether, the tidying process
takes about five hours. It usually
lasts until about noon.
"That's why it's nice to have so
many bodies," Ehman said. "We
actually get the cleaning done in a
timely manner."
