Recycling Ambassador Volunteer Opportunities
After training is complete, ambassadors are expected to volunteer for at least 30 hours to apply their skills toward minimizing waste and educating others about waste reduction, recycling, and composting.
Recycling Ambassadors have the option to either create their own volunteer opportunities focused on waste reduction or participate in other community events listed below. Flexibility is provided to Recycling Ambassadors to choose opportunities that suit their interests.
