Join the Dining Services Green Team!

Join the Virginia Tech Dining Services Green Team and help educate our community about Sustainable Dining Initiatives at Virginia Tech.

The DS Green Team is a great way for you to get involved in Sustainable Dining Initiatives on campus.  Dining Services Green Team members will have their hands on the pulse of Sustainability in Dining Services.  Work with Dining Services’ Sustainability Coordinator to get rid of  Styrofoam to go containers on campus!  Work with Dining Services staff members to educate customers about sustainable habits.  Encourage further local food sourcing and engage with the Dining Services Garden at Kentland Farm!

Project Waste Station starts Monday 11/12.  Sign up for a weekly shift HERE!

The Waste Stations at Turner Place have the capacity to accept compostables, recyclables and landfill- ables.  Green Team members will be stationed during lunch hours (11-2) at Turner Place. Sign up for a shift HERE.

How it Works:

  1. Sign up for a Green Team Member Shift at Turner Place.  Shifts will last one hour.  We are asking that you sign up for shifts that you can attend on a weekly basis.  If you can’t make that weekly commitment, just note that in the survey.  Shifts start the week of 11/12 and will run until 12/12 (excluding Thanksgiving Break).  You are more than welcome to sign up for MORE than one shift per week!!
  2. Keep an eye out for an email from the Dining Services Sustainability Coordinator about specifics for your shift.Green Team Members are asked to wear a DS Green Team Button during their shifts.  Info about where/ when to pick these up will be sent in this email.
  3. Report to Turner Place for your first shift.  Wear you Dining Services Green Team Button.
  4. Volunteer for at least 5 DS Green Team shifts before Winter Break and you will receive a FREE Reusable Bottle from Dining Services.
