Tailgate Recycling Program

Tailgate Recycling and Greek Row Recycling

You can help keep our campus green by recycling during Georgia Southern home games in the tailgate lots and on Greek Row!

Stadium Tailgate Recycling:

Did you know that litSlide1erally tons of trash are generated by fans at every Georgia Southern home game? You can be True Blue and Green Too by recycling at your tailgate this year. Starting three hours before the game, student volunteers on the True Blue Recycling Crew in neon vests will  distribute recycle bags throughout the tailgate lot for your empty aluminum cans/bottles and plastic beverage bottles. Please do NOT place glass bottles, Solo cups or other contaminants into the recycle bags. Tie off the bags and leave them by the road when you go into the game, and the True Blue Recycle Crew will pick them up. Look for the yellow bins throughout the lot under Recycle Here flags and deposit your glass here only. If you have any questions or need more recycling bags, the Center for Sustainability table is located near Gate 8 and the ticket office.   With your help, we can defer more thousands of  pounds of recycling from the landfill for each game! 

Sustainability Programs has partnered with Renew Merchandise – a company which creates ‘One More Time’ recycled apparel from plastic bottles.  Make sure your recycling comes back to campus ‘One More Time’ as a t-shirt in the University Store!

Volunteer Opportunities!

For every home game, we need volunteers to help us pass out and collect recycling bags! This is a great opportunity for students to receive community service hours.  If you are interested, or know of a club that would like to participate, please contact us at sustainability@georgiasouthern.edu or 912-478-5895
