Zero Waste Day at 5/3 Ballpark


On Wednesday, August 19th Fifth Third Ballpark and GVSU will be putting a special focus on reducing the amount of waste going to the landfill.  Grand Rapids is an area that proudly leads the way with its many green initiatives and, in this spirit, we will be attempting to compost and recycle as much as possible!

What will the volunteers be doing?

The volunteers’ most important roll will be to positively encourage people to use the trash, recycling, and composting bins correctly.  Signs will be posted at the bins to direct people, but the volunteers will be another critical support.  They will also take part in set-up, take-down and weighing the amount of material that is diverted from the landfill.

Some nice perks!

Volunteers will receive free parking, free entry for a lawn seat, a t-shirt, and a voucher for a hotdog, chips & pop.  There will also be fireworks at the end of this ballgame!


The gates to the ballpark will open at 6:00 pm and the game will start at pm.  There will be two volunteer shifts so you can enjoy the game before or after you volunteer!

The first shift will include helping with set-up and will go from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

The second shift will include help with take-down and will go from 8 pm to 10:30 pm.
