It takes many people to get the message out about recycling to all of the fans on game day. Volunteering for Game Day Recycling is a great way to support the team and give back to Tech. The time commitment is one hour, and all volunteer shifts finish in time for kickoff. Volunteers receive a 100% organic cotton T-shirt.
There are two options for volunteering: Tailgating Volunteers give out blue bags to tailgaters and Green Greeters greet fans as they go into the Stadium.
Option 1: Tailgating Volunteers
Tailgating volunteers work in teams to distribute blue recycling bags to fans who are tailgating on campus. Meet in the Student Commons (next to 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 will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. At the end of your shift, please return any extra bags to the Student Center Commons. Refreshments will be provided.
Option 2: Green Greeters
Greet fans outside the Stadium and encourage them to recycle their bottles and cans. Your presence makes the Game Day Recycling Program much more visible and raises awareness of recycling. Your shift begins one hour before kickoff, and ends when the game starts. Meet outside the stadium at Gate 7 to check in and pick up your T-shirt. Green Greeters receive a concessions voucher that can be used at any home game during the season.
Start times for the volunteer shifts depend on each game's kickoff time. Kickoff times are announced here, usually 7-10 days before the game. The table below will be updated as each game's kickoff time is announced.
