St. Louis, MO (KMOV.com) -- Washington University has tore up the artificial turf on the football field and Saturday they will begin distributing it throughout the region.

The university, the Teamsters Joint Council 13, and St. Louis Green started loading up the one million pounds of turf from Francis Field at 9 Saturday morning to distribute it to places like playgrounds and parks in different municipalities, schools and organizations.

The university wanted to find a environmentally friendly way of disposing of the turf and by reusing the turf, all of it will stay out of a landfill.
