Volunteers needed for recycling classes and events


Last updated 10/5/2018 at 3:25am

RIVERSIDE – Residents who are interested in helping the environment or who like to compost or recycle can become an outreach volunteer with the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources and help others become better recyclers and composters.

Outreach volunteers are needed to assist with classes or events by interacting with the public, answering questions on outreach programs and distributing materials. Volunteers should enjoy meeting people, like to learn new things and be passionate about the environment. The total volunteer commitment is attendance at the two-hour orientation and training meeting and four hours of volunteer time donated each quarter while participating in the program. Opportunities to volunteer at classes and events are located across the entire county; the volunteers can select the events, dates and times that work best for them.

Outreach volunteers can also choose to attend extra training and volunteer more hours in order to become certified as a master composter.  Once a volunteer reaches master composter status, the volunteer is allowed to teach classes on their own or work with schools and community gardens as a composting mentor.

Orientation and training is scheduled throughout the year at Riverside County Department of Waste Resources, 14310 Frederick St., in Moreno Valley.

For more information, potential outreach volunteers can visit or call (951) 486-3200.
