The TailGator Recycling Program is a volunteer oriented program 
that works every home football game to provide recycling services 
to on campus and off campus tailgates! We roll up our sleeves, put 
on some gloves and enjoy the hours before the game visiting 
high-traffic tailgating areas to promote recycling.

The fun begins this week, Saturday, with shifts on both 9/4 and 
9/11 from 9-11am and 11am-1pm.

You can earn a Green Team t-shirt (they're all the rage!), some 
money back for your organization, and the chance to know you're 
helping keep the campus and the community beautiful. You'll also 
get your 30 second "How to Recycle" spiel down pat, making you a 
hit on the cocktail party circuit.
