Post-Holiday Recycling Center Volunteers Wanted

Red Bridge Recycling Center

Saturday, December 29 and January 5

Two shifts: 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM or 1:00 – 5:00 PM


Ho Ho Whoa! That’s a lot of holiday packaging! Help us manage the influx of post-holiday waste! Grab your family, and volunteer outside with us at the Red Bridge Community Recycling Center.  Also, this opportunity is great for students on holiday break.  Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc.

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.

Shifts: 9:30 am – 1:30 pm or 1pm – 5pm. If those exact times do not work for you, we can be flexible.

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.

Min age: 8 with parent. Volunteer alone at 14 yrs. Restrictions differ for groups. All volunteers must register in advance.  Call/text Amy Smith at 816-561-1062 or email, mentioning your preferred shift. Online registration is not available for this opportunity. To sign up, please contact Amy.

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

Note: the Metro North site, located at 8729 N. Summit, Kansas City, MO 64155, closed on Saturday, October 13. Click here for more info about the relocation.
