SIU Athletics and the Sustainability Office

Since 2015, SIU Sustainability has been partnering with SIU Athletics to promote recycling to our football game day tailgaters. In 2018, we expanded our promotion into the stadium.

We rely on our partnerships with Plant and Service Operations (PSO) Grounds, PSO Building Services, and our Saluki Green Action Team volunteers to support this initiative.


Volunteer with us for the 2019 football season!
