Volunteer! Urgent Request Metro North Recycling Center, Flexible Shifts | “Milk Chocolate Day”

July 28, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Saturday, July 28 is Milk Chocolate Day!  Volunteer at the Metro North Recycling Center and get a KIND bar sprinkled with chocolate! We currently have zero afternoon volunteers signed up to help at our busiest Recycling Center this Saturday, July 28. Yikes!  Can you and a friend lend a hand for a few hours?


Morning shift is 9:30 AM – 1:00 PM and afternoon shift is 1:00 – 5:00 pm, but we can be flexible if those times don’t work for you. This outdoor volunteer opportunity is great for students who want to stay busy during the summer or gain more experience. Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc.


Metro North Community Recycling Center is located north of the river.  Min age: 8 (min age 10 for youth groups). All volunteers must register in advance. Contact Amy Smith at 816-561-1062 or email volunteer@bridgingthegap.org.


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.


We apologize that we are not able to offer or sign off on court-mandated community service or disciplinary service.
