ECDRR is always looking for volunteers to help make events and other recycling programs happen! There are only two restrictions: volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must have a volunteer application form on file (can be filled out the day of the event). Some of the benefits of volunteering for collection events include:  

  • Helping to reduce the amount of hazardous and/or recyclable waste sent to landfills and combustion facilities.
  • Free refreshments (coffee, doughnuts, & fresh fruit in the morning and pizza/sandwiches, chips, soda pop, & more in the afternoon)
  • Free disposal of ALL items accepted at the events regardless of residency.

Volunteer registration information is listed under each individual event when they become available. For additional information about volunteering please contact our office
