Tailgate Recycling

The Carolina Panthers are teaming up with Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful, Bojangles, City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services/Special Services and Charlotte Center City Partners to provide recycling for tailgaters. The pilot program will launch on August 29th at the Carolina Panthers' first preseason game in a selected four block area near Bank of America Stadium.
Tailgaters will receive two bags as they enter into their usual parking lot. One is designated for trash. The other, a bright yellow bag with the Carolina Panthers and Bojangles’ logos, is for all recyclable bottles and cans. Before heading into the stadium, tailgaters are instructed to leave both bags at the curb to be picked up by Charlotte’s Special Services teams.
With success, the footprint of the recycling area will be expanded. Thanks for keeping Third Ward beautiful!
