Do you want to help create a more sustainable future for Kansas City? Help your community and the environment by volunteering at our Pleasant Valley Park Community Recycling Center! This outdoor volunteer opportunity is a great way to learn about the recycling process while making a difference in your community. Volunteers help people properly dispose of their recyclable materials, provide information about recycling and other environmental resources, and assist the site manager as needed.

Flexible shifts - Wednesday through Saturday, year-round. Recommended shift times are 9:30 am - 1:30 pm or 1:00 - 5:00 pm, but these times can be adjusted to fit your schedule.

The Pleasant Valley Park Community Recycling Center is located in North Kansas City. All volunteers must register in advance. To sign up, please visit or text or call Ami at 816-561-1062 or email

Your volunteer service is so important - recycling not only keeps waste out of the landfills, it also 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 access to recycling at home.
