Go Green for Big Red

Established in the Fall of 2008, Go Green for Big Red is UNL’s annual game day recycling initiative. UNL Recycling partners with volunteers and the community to encourage recycling and expand awareness on Husker home football game days. Generous student, faculty, staff, and community volunteers distribute green bags that fans can use to collect recyclables as they tailgate, primarily focusing on parking lots and walkways on UNL property around Memorial Stadium. This initiative helps UNL divert game day waste from the landfill and significantly increase recycling rates, helping our Huskers and the environment win!

Sign up to be included on communication about future game day volunteer opportunities!
