Cleveland Indians Green Team 2018 Volunteer Signup

Why Volunteer?
  • Volunteering is fun and you get to watch the game for free in an exciting environment.  We are stationed around the lower deck, so the view is great!

  • Meet other amazing people who volunteer and possibly make new friends.
  • Make an educational impact by your presence at the event.  Increase fan awareness of recycling opportunities.
  • Interact in a positive way with fans.

  • It helps reduce waste going to the landfill and increases recycling.

  • Financial donations will be made by the Cleveland Indians to the Bay Village Green Team for our participation.  Because the Bay Village Green Team is a 100% volunteer-operated 501c3 nonprofit, all the funds will go back into the Bay Village community to make our city a healthier and more sustainable place to live.
What is Expected of you?
  • The Cleveland Indians Green Team is a volunteer group that will pass through the aisles at the bottom of each inning to collect recyclables (plastic bottles, cups, and aluminum cans) from fans at Progressive Field.  We only collect recyclables, not trash.  Each volunteer will be given collection bags and gloves when they arrive for their volunteer night.

  • When not collecting, you will be stationed at the top of your section(s), standing while on duty, but able to watch the game.  No seating is provided to volunteers.

  • Volunteers should avoid being in the aisles when the game is in play.

  • Volunteers are prohibited from drinking alcohol while on duty at Progressive Field.  Those who choose to break this rule will be immediately removed from the stadium by security. You are free to be a regular fan after the shift ends after you have turned in your volunteer shirt at the conclusion of the 6th inning.

  • A background check will be performed by the Cleveland Indians prior to the game. Please note that this must be submitted yearly and must be completed before you volunteer for the season. (see info below)
  • An individual picture must be submitted in order for the Indians to make a security ID badge for each volunteer. (see info below)
  • Meet at the designated entrance at the time specified in your volunteer night to receive your Cleveland Indians identification badge and assigned section.  Arrive before the start of the game and volunteer through the 6th inning. 

  • No concealed carry weapons are allowed.  You will go through a metal detector to gain entrance to the stadium.
