Volunteer Ongoing: Wednesday – Saturday, Community Recycling Centers
August 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - April 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Recycling Center Volunteers Wanted!
Two locations to choose from
Ongoing, year-round, Wednesday through Saturday
Are you passionate about recycling? Help your community and the environment by volunteering at one of our Community Recycling Centers! Recycling preserves forests; keeps oil, natural gas, and minerals in the ground; and prevents air and water pollution. Bridging The Gap’s Community Recycling Centers are essential because they accept items not recycled curbside and provide options to the many people who do not have recycling available at home.
This outdoor volunteer opportunity is great for students looking to stay busy this summer and gain valuable experience! Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded “Bridging The Gap” shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares! Flexible shifts – Wednesday through Saturday. Two locations to choose from!
The Metro North Recycling Center is located north of the river at 8740 N Summit Street KCMO 64155. We have a special need for Saturday volunteers to help at the Metro North location. The Red Bridge Recycling Center is located at 5200 E. Red Bridge Rd., Kansas City, MO 64137 in the KCATA Park-and-Ride commuter parking lot.
On Saturdays, at the Metro North location, we are able to work with small groups (max 6 volunteers). Min age: 8 with parent. Volunteer alone at 14 yrs. Restrictions differ for groups. All volunteers must register in advance. Contact Amy Smith at 816-561-1087 or email, mentioning your preferred location and volunteer date/time.
We apologize that we are not able to offer or sign off on court-mandated community service or disciplinary service.
