Recycling Drop Off Site:  Spend a couple of hours at the drop off site answering general recycling questions.

Community Outreach Events:  Such as manning the Solid Waste booth at the fair, typically partnered with someone else and assigned in two hour shift at the fair answering basic recycling questions 

Special Projects:  Recycled art competition, initiating a styrofoam collection co-op, do you have an idea?  

Community collection events (spring/fall):  One Saturday morning, light duty work, directing traffic, completing forms, counting tires, etc.  between 2 and 6 hours
