The Sustainability Coalition’s Waste Prevention Action Team is inviting Corvallis residents to participate in the Recycling Block Captains program.
As a recycling block captain, you can help educate your neighbors about recycling, composting, and waste prevention, as well as encourage their full participation in the opportunities that Republic Services is currently providing. The time commitment is 1-5 hours every three to five months (depending on how many homes you choose to cover), so it’s both easy and very beneficial to the neighborhoods that are served.
Recycling block captains have two primary responsibilities:
- Distribute recycling information to your neighbors 3-4 times per year.
- Serve as a liaison between your neighbors and the Coalition’s Waste Prevention Action Team (i.e. pickup your handouts quarterly and help answer your neighbors’ questions if/when they arise).
The Coalition provides the handouts; you define your own neighborhood (number of homes and location). You can see a map of existing neighborhoods and past handouts on their webpage.
Applications are due by July 27th, you can sign up for the program here!
