Recycling Center Volunteer Opportunity!

Flexible Ongoing Volunteer Opportunity!

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.  This is an excellent opportunity for students earning service-learning credit, employees who get Volunteer Time Off compensation, retired folks looking to stay busy, or simply enthusiastic recyclers!

Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, helping visitors, etc. This is an outdoor opportunity.

Flexible Shifts: Wed through Sat, between 10am – 5pm (you choose 3 or 4 hours that work for you).

Min age: 8 with parent. Can volunteer alone at 14.
