Are you interested in recycling and environmental education, and looking for ways to contribute in the community? Volunteer to become a Master Recycler.
Wake County is seeking volunteers 18 and older for its new Master Recyclers program, which will help educate youth and families on the benefits of recycling while learning about recycling and solid waste.
Potential volunteers can visit the website for more information and to request an application. There will be an orientation and training for volunteer duties.
If you're under 18 and are looking for an environmental cause to take part in, you can apply for the Environmental Services Youth Council.
Students in 9th through12th grades can become a council member where they learn about environmental issues and policies in Wake County, earn community service credit and possibly advise departmental staff on existing and future youth programs.
Members will serve a one-year term and meet monthly between October and May. The deadline for applications is Friday, Sept. 10.
