Boiler Tailgate Team 2013 Results


Tailgate Team 2Coach Hazell is reshaping, rebuilding and returning Purdue Football to a championship team. Along with Purdue Football, the Boiler Tailgate Team reshaped, rebuilt, and returned to make the 2013 Tailgate season a huge success.

The Tailgate Team worked hard to provided recycling information and recycling bags to tailgaters at Purdue home football games. Improving recycling infrastructure and marketing the Tailgate Teams efforts led for a 2013 season high diversion rate of 44.6%!

The Team crushed previous year’s high diversion rate of only 18%. The more than double increase in the rate is accredited to over 180 volunteers creating a shift of tailgater’s mental model to “recycle first, trash second”.

Until next season, the Tailgate Team will continue to move forward to make an even bigger impact in tailgating culture! Bleed Black and Gold, Live Green!
