The #GatorsBEATWaste Station, a partnership between PepsiCo, Business Services, Gator Dining and the Office of Sustainability, was unveiled in the summer of 2019 in the Reitz Union Food Court across from Starbucks and Pollo Tropical. The station is outfitted with easy-to-follow instructions and graphics to help guests navigate the disposal process in a few simple steps. It also offers volunteer opportunities for students. This station is the first post-consumer composting location on UF campus and will serve as a pilot for future waste station opportunities.
The #GatorsBEATWaste Station will be seeking volunteer ambassadors again in the Fall of 2021. Please check back soon for applications. Volunteer ambassadors will be on-site during peak hours to help familiarize newcomers with the station and to answer any questions about waste reduction and recycling.
