Hiring for the 2017 Season: Recycling On the Go Recycling Ambassadors
Most people believe they know how to recycle and yet, the U.S recycles less than half of our potential resources with increasing contamination rates. Engaging with thousands, our program averages nearly 70%, keeping over 60 tons of resources annually from landfills through recycling and composting event waste. Be a part of the solution. Learn how to make a difference and…
Experience some of the region’s best outdoor events in an unique way with our Recycling On the Go crew.
A community service-oriented experience: we get more thank yous in 4 hours than most people get all month!
Become a Recycling Ambassador – work with our Recycling On the Go Program Director and Site Supervisors to implement our event-greening program onsite. Many events employ a waste station model where staff and volunteers are needed to help attendees sort their waste into compost, recycling, and landfill. Educational, fun and engaging! If you love to be outside and would like to earn money while doing so, this is the perfect job for you. Flexible scheduling.
