Tailgate Recycling

Green Your Game

Throughout the Fall semester, colleges and universities across the nation get rowdy for the Football season.  From tailgating to after parties, the amount of waste generated — especially some of the largest universities in the nation — is unimaginable and completely unsustainable.

After surveying the tailgates at UCF and PSU, noticing the majority of the waste generated was aluminum cans, glass bottles, and paper; we decided to come together with a plan to minimize our universities impact on the environment.

The “Green Your Game” initiative is designed as a waste reduction plan for a home football game and a method to engage students through an initiative focused on reducing our environmental impact.  Other benefits include reporting the amount of waste generated and recycled throughout each game.
