TailGator Green Team

#2010 - Kentucky 092510 (02)The TailGator Green Team is a volunteer-based recycling program coordinated by the UF Office of Sustainability, in partnership with Pepsi and Physical Plant Solid Waste Management, that aims to educate and encourage tailgating football fans to recycle and do so properly. Check out this video to learn more!

Our Impact

Since the program began in 2006, more than 350,000 pounds of recyclable aluminum, glass, and plastic have been diverted from the landfill.

Volunteering with the Green Team:

  • Volunteers work in teams of 2 to 4 people, for a 2-hour shift.
  • For shifts throughout the day, volunteers are given blue recycling bags and assigned to high-traffic tailgating areas on campus where they distribute the bags to fans, along with information on what is and is not recyclable.
  • Volunteers will receive snacks and refreshments for their time and effort, and – after two shifts – will receive a free Green Team t-shirt!
