This is a great volunteer opportunity if you believe in recycling and / or a Ram’s fan. The Ram’s Greenteam is looking for volunteers to help out at their home games. We have been doing this for a few years now and I can tell you it is a pretty easy gig. Basically, there are two persons assigned a section in the lower bowl of Dome. Each team goes to their section and collects recyclables (primarily plastic beer bottles). You only do this at the end of the 1st quarter, halftime, end of the 3rd quarter, and about 10 minutes after the game. Since the time between quarters is so short, it only takes a couple of minutes to collect what you can. You can’t be collecting while the game is going on! The people that sit in these sections are usually season ticket holders and are familiar with the Green team and what we do so they are very cooperative.
So what do you do the rest of the time??? Watch the game from the volunteers own party room. So for a little work, you get to see the Rams play for free. You also get a Rams Greenteam t-shirt to wear and get an invitation to season ending party at Rams park.
You can pick out what games you want to work. Some volunteers do them all, some only one or a couple. We have already signed up to work 4 of them – the Cowboys, 49ers, Seahawks, and Denver games. It would be great to see some fellow Meetupers join in. Some of you are familiar with JoAnn and Mary Kay from working on the Christmas light drive. Great folks to deal with.
NOW is the time of year when they recruit and schedule volunteers for games. The invite to volunteer goes out to a large database of people so to secure your spot at the games you would like to go to requires some quick action. Signing up is easy as picking out your games, providing contact info and your t –shirt size and e-mailing it to them. Below is the e-mail I received about signing up. You can put my name in as the group. They will know who I am.

Easiest is to copy, complete and return the attached form. I have included a copy below fyi. I don't think this works if you try to fill it out here, but completing the attachment and returning it has been working.
