Scraps has volunteer opportunities for you!
see details & sign up below.
The Big Wonderful:
this November/December, Scraps will once again be offering zero-waste services for The Big Wonderful, Denver's iconic multi-day festival series, filled with local music, local vendors and of course local brews & food! at the first Big Wonderful event of 2017 (in May), Scraps helped keep 425 pounds of compostables and 1,107 pounds of recyclables out of the landfill, and we topped those numbers at the July TBW event! we're still waiting on numbers from the recent Oktobergrass TBW event, our third one as the festival's zero-waste partner. we're thrilled to be headed toward a fourth!
as a volunteer you'll most likely be monitoring a zero-waste station, helping people sort their "trash" into the right bin, but you may also find yourself helping Scraps staff with other tasks, as well. your role as a volunteer will be to make it as easy as possible for people to recycle their recyclables and compost their compostables! you'll help minimize "contamination" - meaning that you'll help make sure things get into the right bin from the start - and that our waste diversion numbers are accurate. you'll be kind and thankful to people and be excited to chat with them about the importance of composting and recycling, and we'll give you some Scraps resources to share with them. please sign up below!

pedal with Scraps:
As Scraps gets started, we welcome volunteers to ride along with us on our pick-up shifts! You can help lift & weigh the compostables we collect, and pedal your bike along with our trike pedalers. (And if you want to, you may even be able to try pedaling the trike!)
Our shifts currently run Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. To sign up to volunteer to pedal with us, please fill out the form below.
