    Swoopin' Up the Butts 

    Come help the Environmental Center Student Coalition and Healthy Ospreys keep campus butt-free! UNF became smoke-free in August 2015, at which time all cigarette receptacles were removed from campus. These collaborative cleanups are a fun way to help keep the university beautiful and litter-free during this important transition.

    Garbage on the Green — Date TBD

    Garbage on the Green  is a large waste audit on the UNF campus that takes place every October. At the event, over 100 volunteers sort and measure waste found on the UNF campus. This is a unique and fun event that has become a tradition on campus. In addition to the waste audit, there is an early morning campus cleanup. 


    Want to take your participation to the next level? We are always looking for dedicated students to help plan and promote Garbage on the Green.   Send us an e-mail today if you are interested !
