Sustainability Game Day Information

Want to GREEN your tailgate?

Be a part of Notre Dame’s efforts to go green by greening your tailgate! Below is an overview of Notre Dame’s Game Day recycling.

How does it work?

At each home game, teams of volunteer students circulate through the Stadium, Joyce, Library, Bulla, Burke, and Bookstore tailgate lots, distributing blue recycle bags to guests and answer questions about single stream recycling.

In an effort to promote recycling and keep the most congested parking lots clean, parking lot attendants will distribute to each incoming car 2 blue bags for recycling and 2 clear bags for trash.  Guests may leave their opened or loosely-tied recycle and tied-up clear trash bags at their vehicles for pick-up before kickoff.  We ask that fans do not overload the exterior trash and recycling barrels.

What can I recycle?

Empty plastic bottles

Empty glass bottles

Empty aluminum cans


What kind of impact does this have?

Since its start in 2007, the Game Day Recycling Program has diverted more than 1,062 tons of waste material from area landfills – that’s around 39 semi-trucks full!  We're on track to collect more than 100 tons of recycling again this season.  Thank you for being a part of our Irish going green movement!
