​Keep Mecklenburg BeautifulTurning Pathers Tailgaters Into Recyclers

Panther TailgatersTo encourage recycling at Panther games, Tailgaters get a yellow recycling bag as they enter their usual parking lot prior to the game. Before heading into the stadium, tailgaters are instructed to leave bags (and collapsed cardboard if not in the bag) at the curb to be picked up by the City of Charlotte’s Special Services teams. 

Panthers Tailgate Recycling Partners include Bojangles, the City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services/Special Services, Charlotte Center City Partners and the Carolina Panthers. The partnership hopes to increase awareness and participation by increasing communication and education efforts. Volunteers are recruited to assist parking lot operators in distributing extra bags and sharing information with fans about what to recycle and collection.

Volunteer commitment is from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
