WANTED: Corvallis Recycling Block Captains!
The Coalition’s Waste Prevention Action Team invites additional Corvallis residents to participate in our Recycling Block Captains program!
As a recycling block captain, you can help educate your neighbors about recycling, composting, and waste prevention, as well as encourage their full participation in the opportunities that Republic Services is currently providing. It takes just a couple hours every three to five months to participate. Recycling block captains have two primary responsibilities:
- Distribute recycling information to your neighbors three to four times a year, and
- Serve as a liaison between your neighbors and the Sustainability Coalition’s Waste Prevention Action Team.
The action team provides the handouts; the captains define their own neighborhood (number of homes and location).
Sign-up using this online form.
Note: Not all neighborhoods are marked yet.
