What do Volunteers Do?
Volunteers work with our staff to sort waste materials generated within the festival grounds. They work on one of our sorting belts, taking out recycling and compost materials. Clean materials makes sure recycling and compost facilities can accept materials from festivals.
Volunteers work with staff to collect full bags of materials from the festival grounds, and bring them back to the Zero Waste tent. We make sure no bags overflow and the festival grounds stay clean and well-maintained.
Volunteers learn about zero waste practices so they can educate event attendees about what’s recyclable, compostable or reusable. They are our ambassadors to the festival and help bring a face to the festival’s goal of going zero waste.
Volunteers Clean Up
Even at the best kept festival there is cleanup in the days following the event. Volunteers help do litter sweeps, and final checks to make sure we’re leaving the festival grounds as clean as the day we arrived.
That sounds awesome!

Some festivals we work with have their own Volunteer portal. Sign up to volunteer with us (Zero Waste, or green team) through their websites.
