Barb Buril has a volunteer opportunity for you: be trash!
Do you want to test your knowledge of the new city recycling rules? Do you get a warm feeling when you see food waste go to compost instead of landfill? Do you love using those trash grabbers to pick up things?
We have a volunteer opportunity for you!
This year the Wallingford Street Festival will have recycling / composting / garbage stations to reduce the amount of landfill waste generated. We need volunteers to help fair attendees choose the correct bin for their unwanted stuff.
The festival takes place Saturday, July 11 on Wallingford Avenue between N 43rd and N 45th Streets, from 10 am to 5 pm.
We need one adult or teen per station, and suggest a shift of 1/2 to 1 hour. Elementary and middle school kids are welcome to help the older team member. We’ll provide gloves, grabbers, and signage about what goes where.
All volunteers will receive a “Wallingford” baseball cap for participating.
To sign up for a shift, contact Barb Burril at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-632-0130.
PS – Extra Credit – we also will have the Seattle Public Utilities recycling costumes that volunteers can wear. Test your ability to entertain your neighbors as an apple core, newspaper, milk carton, or pop bottle!
In case you missed it, volunteers get a genuine Wallingford baseball cap. Can’t go wrong with that!
