CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tailgaters at Carolina Panthers’ games recycled 30 tons of cans and bottles throughout the NFL season, topping organizers’ goal by 50 percent.

The Charlotte Observer reports Wednesday that tailgaters recycled the waste during 10 preseason and regular season Panthers games, plus the Meineke Car Care Bowl. The goal had been 20 tons.

Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful coordinated the effort, while Bojangles’ donated recycling bags handed out by volunteers.

Organizers say tailgaters recycled more as the season progressed.
