Volunteer with the TailGator Gameday Recycling Program as we work to beat waste before the Gators take the field.

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. 

Planning to go to the game? The last shift ends an hour before the game starts, giving you plenty of time to get to your seat before kickoff!

The TailGator Recycling Program is a volunteer-based initiative coordinated by the UF Office of Sustainability, in partnership with Pepsi and Physical Plant Solid Waste Management, that aims to educate and encourage tailgating football fans to recycle and do so properly. This is a fun, easy and meaningful way to get involved with sustainability at UF! All volunteers also receive free food and refreshments.
