Green Team

The Green Team is an integral part of the behind-the-scenes work of sustainability at Coastal Carolina University. The Green Team consists of student workers that collect the recyclables on-campus in all academic and administrative buildings, as well as during special events, especially athletic events. 

You can volunteer with the Green Team throughout the school year at one of these events, visit the Sustain Coastal calendar for details:

  • Move-In Weekend (August)
  • Game Day Recycling (September-November)
  • Recycled Boat Race (Homecoming)
  • Community / Neighborhood Clean-Up Events
  • Adopt-a-Landing / River Clean-Up Events
