We Can't Do It Without You!

Volunteers are critical to Eco Plastic's mission. Everyday we need your support, in a variety of roles.

Spend a two hour shift, four hour shift, or longer with friends, family, and colleagues and help us "Recycle Today....Save Tomorrow."

Check out the fun and rewarding ways to make a real difference in our community, and lasting change world-wide.

ALL VOLUNTEERS will need to complete and sign a "Volunteer Release and Waiver of Liability form."In light of the COVID-19 crisis, we

 

require face masks if you enter the facility. Volunteers will be limited and spaced 6 feet apart.

Accepting Donations

A face mask, gloves, and a friendly attitude are all it takes to help accept plastic donations at our facility. You'll greet donors, accept the plastic, weigh it, and record information. This is a great entry-level volunteer opportunity, and one that keeps ECOP going.

Shifts are typically 2-4 hours long and run throughout the week.

Operating the shredder is critical to our operations. Eligible volunteers need to be steady on their feet, be able to walk up/down stairs, be able to lift pounds of plastic, and be vigilant following safety protocols. Hearing protection is required to operate the shredder. This position is intermediate and requires a minimum time commitment of two hours.

Shifts are typically 2-4 hours long and run throughout the week.

Extruding

Extruding is not complicated, but it does require training, concentration, and attention to detail. Eligible volunteers need to be experienced in operating machinery, be steady on their feet and be able to walk up/down stairs. Extruding requires patience and unwavering attention to detail as this is high temperature work.

Shifts are typically 2-4 hours long and run throughout the week.
