It takes many people to get the message out about recycling to all of the fans on game day, and the Game Day Recycling committee could not complete the project without the help of volunteers. There are two options for volunteering. Volunteers can distribute bags to tailgaters ("Tailgaters") or greet fans as they go into the Stadium ("Green Greeters"). Volunteer shifts are about one hour on game day, and all volunteer shifts finish in time for kickoff. Volunteer options and the schedule and are provided below.
Volunteering for Game Day Recycling is a great way to support the team and give back to Tech. Volunteers will receive a 100% organic cotton T-shirt and either pizza or a concessions voucher.
Game Day Recycling Volunteer Options: Tailgater or Green Greeter
Tailgating volunteers work in teams of four to distribute blue recycling bags to fans who are tailgating on campus. Meet in the Student Commons (next to the SGA office and Subway) to check in and pick up your T-shirt. Your team will get a map that has an area of campus highlighted and 100 blue plastic bags. Hand out bags to tailgating groups located in your highlighted area. Please remind fans that the bags are for plastic bottles, glass bottles, and aluminum cans, and after filling the bags they can just leave them on the ground. The bags will be picked up by GT Facilities employees. Your entire shift should take 45 minutes to 1 hour. At the end of your shift, please return any extra bags to the Student Center Commons.
Pizza will be provided for all of the "Tailgater" volunteers!
Green Greeters work in teams of two or more, and each of the teams will be assigned to one of the ten stadium gates. Meet outside the stadium at Gate 7 to check in and pick up your T-shirt. Your role is to greet fans at the gate and encourage them to put their bottles and cans in the green and white recycling bins before they go inside the stadium. Your presence will make the Game Day Recycling Program much more visible and raise awareness of recycling. Your shift begins one hour before kickoff, and ends when the game starts.
"Green Greeters" receive a concessions voucher for use inside the stadium! It is good for a meal item and a small soda. It can be used at any home football game this season. (Note: We do not provide tickets to the game. You will need a ticket in order to enter the stadium.)
