What to Expect as a Volunteer

Although Garbage on the Green is a research-oriented event focused on sustainability, the study also gives students a direct opportunity to work together towards an eco-conscious collective and encourages involvement with their campus and community. 

Besides being a fun event, some incentives for volunteering include: 

-Free T-Shirt 
-Free lunch
-Documented Volunteer Hours


Volunteers at Garbage on the Green will sort through trash and recyclables collected on the UNF campus. Due to the nature of the event, the Environmental Center takes great strides to ensure that volunteers are properly trained prior for a safe, hands-on experience
