Bridging The Gap


Are you passionate about recycling? This is an excellent opportunity for retired folks to stay active and make a difference in the community! Help your community and the environment by volunteering at our Red Bridge Community Recycling Center! Recycling preserves forests; keeps oil, natural gas, and minerals in the ground; and prevents air and water pollution. Bridging The Gap’s Community Recycling Centers are essential because they accept items not recycled curbside and provide options to the many people who do not have recycling available at home.

This is an ongoing opportunity, Wednesday through Saturday, but we have a special need for Wednesday morning helpers at the Red Bridge location. Wednesday morning shift of 9:00 AM - Noon is our most needed, but if that exact time does not, we can set up a shift that works for you. Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded "Bridging The Gap" shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares!

The Red Bridge Recycling Center is located at 5200 E. Red Bridge Rd., Kansas City, MO 64137 in the KCATA Park-and-Ride commuter parking lot.

Min age: 8 with parent. Volunteer alone at 14 yrs. Restrictions differ for groups. All volunteers must register in advance. Contact Amy Smith at 816-561-1062 or email, mentioning your preferred location and volunteer date/time.

We apologize that we are not able to offer or sign off on court-mandated community service or disciplinary service. Note, clicking "register for event" will open a blank email to Amy.
