Red Bridge Recycling Center


Bridging The Gap is seeking high school students to volunteer at our outdoor Community Recycling Center this summer! Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. 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.
