Are you passionate about recycling? Help your community and the environment by volunteering at our Metro North Community Recycling Center! 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 earn service-learning credit! Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. Two shifts: 9:30 am – 1:30 pm or 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded “Bridging The Gap” shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares!
The Metro North Recycling Center is located north of the river at 8740 N Summit Street KCMO 64155.
