GameDay Recycling

GameDay Recycling

You can help keep our campus green by recycling during Georgia Southern home games in Paulson Stadium!

GameDay Recycling:

The GameDay Recycling Initiative is an athletics-led program and a partnership between Athletics and Sustain Southern that promotes recycling and waste diversion during athletics events. Through this initiative, we hope to educate our fans and students on the importance of recycling, and in turn to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill. By demonstrating our commitment to sustainability to our fans and students, our goal is to educate them on the importance of being environmentally conscious and challenging them to recycle in their homes and communities. 

Volunteer Opportunities!

You can participate by volunteering as a True Blue and Green Too facilitator. Facilitators will direct fans on how to dispose of their recycling at the gates and help take down the receptacles. We fully adhere to the CDC’s COVID-19 prevention guidelines. This is also a great opportunity for students, fraternities, sororities, and other organizations to receive community service hours and simply have fun. If you are interested or know of an organization that would like to participate, please contact sustainathletics@georgiasouthern.edu. You may also sign up here

When?

There are two (2) volunteer shifts of three (3) hours. The first shift for GameDay recycling starts two (2) hours before kick-off and ends one (1) hour after kick-off. The second shift begins 90 minutes after kick-off and ends shortly after the game.

What Can and Cannot be recycled on Game Day?

Only aluminum beverage cans/bottles and plastic bottles labeled 1 (♳) or 2 (♴) can be recycled in our bins. Please place other items in the waste bin to avoid contamination. Remember, “when in doubt, throw it out”!
