The Office of Sustainability partners with Bobcat Athletics and City of Bozeman to provide recycling at home football games. Recycling is placed in the stadium itself, along with the tailgating area. This past year, our office began working with the City of Bozeman to provide single stream recycling, where all of the recyclables are put into the same bin. Recycling at football games skyrocketed from 4% to a whopping 20%, in part due to single stream recycling, our fantastic staff, volunteers and partners.

Volunteers at football games are vital for us, and if you want to join our team, shoot us an email. We will set you up with a bright yellow t-shirt, and some great resume building in the sustainability field, not to mention the great people you'll meet.
