Scraps has volunteer opportunities for you!
see details & sign up below.
The Big Wonderful:
this September, Scraps will once again be offering zero-waste services for The Big Wonderful, Denver's iconic three-day festival filled with local music, local vendors and of course local brews & food! at the first Big Wonderful (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!
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. and we'll give you a free pass to The Big Wonderful! that means a free "Wonderpass," good for entry to all three days of the event. lucky you!
please sign up below and indicate your interest and availability! we'll reach out to confirm your volunteer dates & times.

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, Wednesday and Friday mornings. To sign up to volunteer to pedal with us, please fill out our Doodle Poll!
