Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Hi all - here's another opportunity to be involved in a neighbourhood-based waste reduction initiative. Let me know what questions you might have and pass along the word! Thanks, Tamara
The City of Vancouver needs YOU for our Food Scraps Recycling Outreach Team!!
The City of Vancouver is setting up a food scraps recycling pilot program with select households in Riley Park and Sunset. All food scraps – including meat, fish, bones, pasta, bread and food-soiled paper – will be able to go in the yard trimmings cart which will be picked up weekly.
We need your help to educate pilot area residents on how to participate in the food scraps recycling program. We’re seeking community-minded people who want to make a difference and help Vancouver reduce its environmental footprint. Strong intercultural communications are required and the ability to speak Punjabi or Cantonese is a bonus! Familiarity with the neighbourhoods also an asset.
The Work. Outreach Team members will be trained in advanced and will work in pairs for each 4 hour shift. Six evenings of door-to-door outreach will take place in September to reach 500 homes in each neighbourhood. Information will also be distributed at community events. All sessions will take place on evenings and weekends.
