When you volunteer for the Diddle/Smith Recycling Program, we have a "Game Plan" for each night. Staying organized, following directions, and working as a team help ensure the night goes smoothly.

Stadium Recycling Program

Would you like to raise money for your organization while helping the planet? Consider volunteering for the Diddle/Smith Recycling Program! This program allows student and community organizations to raise money, earn service hours and practice teamwork all while supporting WKU's recycling program.




      The Diddle/Smith Recycling Program engages student and community organizations through cleaning Diddle Arena or Smith Stadium after each home game; Football and Men's and Women's basketball. Volunteers collect recyclables and landfilled waste left behind by the fans, pour liquids from beverage containers, sweep, mop, sanitize hard seats and bleachers, wipe down all handrails, scrape sticky residue, and remove all recycling and landfilled waste from the building. In exchange for cleaning the space, organizations receive funding for their organization or philanthropy of choice, and volunteers earn 3-5 service hours. Compensation for events vary, as detailed below: 


WKU Football/Smith Stadium - $1,000

Partial Stadium Clean-up - $750

Men's Basketball Games/Diddle Arena - $750

Women's Basketball Games/Diddle Arena - $500

Special Events in Diddle Arena - $500-$850
