Boise State’s Tailgate Recycling Program Returns

Boise State Tailgating

Great food, great friends, great football: it’s tailgating season. 

Boise State Environmental Health, Safety and Sustainability (EHSS) is asking you to tailgate sustainably by participating in a tailgate recycling program during all home football games this season. Use special blue recycling bags for your tailgate waste, and help keep recyclables out of the landfill.

Take an extra step and volunteer for the program by passing out the blue recycling bags to tailgaters, directing them on what to do with bags after the game, and educating fans on recycling. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Kat Davis at or (208) 426-3943.

Boise State introduced the tailgate recycling program for home football games in 2013. That year alone the program kept roughly 36 tons of recyclables out of the landfill.
