Volunteer for Game Day

Saturday, 08 March, 2014

Saturday, March 8th, UT Recycling is working in partnership with UT Athletics and Good Sports Always Recycle to eliminate all waste associated with the UT vs. Missouri basketball game. As you can imagine, 20,000 fans in Thompson-Boling Arena can produce a substantial amount of waste. Help the UT Recycling staff and your RecycleMania team by volunteering a few hours of your time as we Recycle to Rise Above the Top.

Shift Descriptions

3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
During the game, volunteers will be positioned at Zero Waste stations throughout the concourses directing fans to properly dispose of their food and material waste. Each station will have a compost bin for food waste and a zero-sort recycling bin for all other materials.

7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
After the game, volunteers will sweep through the bleachers, separating recyclables from compostables.
