    Condition of the parking lots after the game

    I was rather embarrassed by all of the trash that fans left scattered around the parking lots.

    You were given a trash bag when you entered why didn't you use it. If you knew that one trash bag wasn't going to be enough why didn't you bring additional from home.

    There was no reason to leave the lots in those conditions. And it was disrespectful of the many people that work to make ISU one of the most beautiful university campuses.

    We had a big tailgate setup and did not leave a single piece of trash when we left. I can't say the same for the hok fans that were next to us...

    I blame Messingham


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    This has happened during every tailgate for the last 11 years. It probably has been happening even longer, but my experience only goes back 11 years.

    It's like 75,000+ people partying for an entire day, there's going to be a mess.

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    We, too, had another big set up, and in about 7 years, we have bagged everything, and even separate our cans/bottles for the 'recyclers' that regularly roam the lots. I would be that most of the owners of the lot stickers do a good job. However, thousands walk through the lots, and just throw their crap everywhere as there are very few garbage cans. The University needs to set up 10X the number of garbage cans that they currently set up. This problem is most prevalent at the gates, where they have 1 or 2 can dumps for the folks to drop their items in on the way to the game - again, they need dozens at these posts - it just makes no sense.

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    My wife saw one of the can people (middle aged Asian lady) in the north lots dumping out bags of garbage looking for cans. At least have the decency to put the garbage back.

    Also, the original post made me think of this:

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    Isn't there enough to ***** about with the product on the field? Do we really need complaints about trash in the parking lot? Get a ******* life.


    read this post quickly - it might not last long

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    This isnt anything new, especially for longer games, space just runs out in the garbage cans so trash ends up out after (they really could use to put up about 2-3x as many big cans in the donor lots, especially along the sidewalk where its not just the trash from those tailgating there that ends up there.).

    Also, you might not be staying long enough to see the clean up crew roll through though. Our tailgate takes long enough to tear down that we see that crew roll through and literally swarm the area picking up everything anywhere they see.

    As Marty Huggins would say... "It's a mess"

    that can also apply to our offense as well.

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    I drove by the grass lots Sunday afternoon and they still looked trashed. There was a volunteer group out there picking up trash, but it was a big job. The paved lots were fine by then.

    Re: Condition of the parking lots after the game

    I thought the University had some trash zamboni's?

    Maybe putting out more trash dumpsters, handing out bags would help too. It seems like there is at least twice as many parking people (who don't know what they're doing) working who don't need to be and some of that money could go to having ATVs and people pick up trash bins during the day. That's what the state fair does.

    I will still admit it looked bad and it is sad to see. ISU has to make some money off the parking and can possibly use that in smarter ways.
