Big Blue Recycling Crew

Are you interested in increasing recycling at UK home football games? Big Blue Recycling Crew is a collaborative effort between UK Recycling and UK Athletics to increase recycling in the tailgate area. Student organizations interested in this volunteer opportunity will visit tailgate lots to pass out recycling bags and have interactions about recycling and waste reduction with fans. As a thank you for all of your organization’s hard work, each participant  will receive a free t-shirt, a meal and a $500 donation toward the student organization (10 or more volunteers provided).

For more information about duties and responsibilities, check out our volunteer handout.

To sign up for a game, please complete our online form. *Form will be checked periodically prior to football season.*

Kick off times will be posted 2 weeks prior to game. Some games will require more than one student organization.
