UMass Amherst is participating in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Game Day Challenge, a national collegiate competition where colleges and universities implement recycling and compost programs to reduce waste at football games and tailgates.

This year we will need help promoting composting inside McGuirk Stadium. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and a ticket to the game.

Shifts are available in both the first and second half.  Service hours are welcome.

Sign up today and help us win another Game Day Challenge.
