Fight against landfill waste as a Waste Warrior

November 5, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm, Durham Central Park

Why Volunteer as a Waste Warrior?

Waste Warriors will receive free vouchers to use at the food truck of your choice, a Durham Central Park t-shirt, and also receive a HUGE thank you from us and the Earth. Much more, you'll probably teach a few people a thing or two about composting and recycling which can sometimes be confusing!

Important Volunteer Info:

  • Teens welcome – earn community service credit
  • Youth welcome with adult supervision
  • Dress for the weather
  • Bring your own water bottle
  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to your volunteer shift

No prior experience necessary!

You will be trained prior to your volunteer shift. Please arrive 10 minutes before your volunteer shirt starts to go over volunteer instructions and composting/recycling FAQs.
