TailGator Gameday Recycling Program

The TailGator Recycling Squad is a volunteer-based recycling program coordinated by the UF Office of Sustainability, in partnership with Pepsi and Facilities Services Solid Waste Management, that aims to educate and encourage tailgating football fans to recycle and do so properly.

Volunteering with the TailGator Squad:

  • 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 at UF
  • Free food and refreshments provided for all volunteers
  • Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt after completing their second gameday participation!

How to Volunteer:

The TailGator Recycling Program runs during the fall football season. Please check back soon to find out when the first volunteer dates are for 2020!
