WE Recycle

We Recycle VolunteersThe WE Recycle program is a partnership through Waste Industries, University AthleticsWolfpack Sports Properties and Waste Reduction and Recycling.


As a tailgater, it’s easier than ever to recycle!
  • If you are in any of the NC State owned or State Fairgrounds tailgating lots, there are blue WE Recycle bins placed throughout the parking lots for your convenience.
  • Tailgaters can also utilize the clear WE Recycle bags that can be found at select bag dispenser stations or are distributed by volunteers.
  • All bottles, cans and clean cardboard (ex. six pack containers) can be placed in the clear recycling bags or blue bins.
  • Remember to tie your bag and place it on the ground for pick up.
  • A contractor will come by after the game to clean up and separate recycling and trash bags.
  • Please put any cardboard with food residue (ex. Bojangles boxes), food waste and solo cups into the trash.
