During our monthly Recycling Event, held in collaboration with the Our Lady of Nazereth, Sustainable Roanoke invites the Roanoke Valley community to drop off recyclables that the City and County of Roanoke do not collect for recycling. Sustainable Roanoke volunteers will sort them and send them off to different locations across the country so they can be properly recycled, reused, or repurposed. This is an excellent way to divert "trash" from the landfill, reducing public expenses, minimizing our community's carbon footprint, and raise awareness about the destructive consumption habits of our society.
The list of items we accept is constantly being updated and can be found on our website (www.sustainableroanoke.org).
Volunteers can do a variety of activities including:set-up, greeting, sorting, hosting collection table, packaging, loading, refill station, driving, organizing, answering questions, etc.
All ages welcome! No experience required. Time slots are flexible. If you don't see the time you're available, just sign up for the closest time slot and add a comment about what time you're available.
Thank you for being willing to serve our community and our planet by volunteering your time!
