Become A Recycling Ambassador#

Become A Recycling Ambassador

If you are a strong recycling advocate and would like to be more engaged in this effort in our community, consider volunteering as a Recycling Ambassador! You can play a vital role in helping our community to "recycle right" at our Timberline Recycling Center. Below, you'll find a description of our volunteer position and what training will be involved.

This unpaid volunteer position (at the new Timberline Recycling Center) will include the following duties:

  • Greet and welcome Recyclers
  • Answer recycling questions
  • Hand out flyers
  • If possible and willing, assist (disabled or elderly) Recyclers to unload materials
  • No need to "police" Recyclers; however, safety is a #1 priority, so volunteers will report any unsafe conditions to the City

Note: if you are 16 or 17 years of age, a parent will need to sign your application, but will not need to accompany you volunteering.
