Help your community and the environment by volunteering at our Metro North Community Recycling Centers! Your volunteer service is so important - r ecycling preserves forests; keeps oil, natural gas, and minerals in the ground; and prevents air and water pollution. Our recycling centers are unique in that we accept items not recycled curbside and provide options to the many people who do not have recycling available at home.

This outdoor volunteer opportunity is great for students who want to keep busy during the summer and gain valuable experience. Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. Flexible shifts - Wednesday through Saturday.

Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded "Bridging The Gap" shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares!

Metro North Community Recycling Center is located north of the river. We have a special need for Saturday volunteers. All volunteers must register in advance. Contact Amy Smith at 816-561-1087 or email. We apologize that we are not able to offer or sign off on court-mandated community service or disciplinary service.
