Field Trip – Energy From Waste Tour & Community Clean Up

Event Date: February 11, 2017
Event Location: Covanta, 5150 Riverbend Drive, Burnaby

Hey There,

We’re looking forward to our first community event of the year–a tour of the Burnaby Energy from Waste plant and a clean-up of the surrounding area. It’s a great way to meet The Green Chair Team while gaining a behind-the-scenes look at where ~20% of Metro Vancouver’s waste ends up!


Together we can make an impact! No experience is necessary and a variety of shifts are available. Do one of the days or multiple days! All equipment as well as refreshments will be provided.

Our Recycling Volunteers attend community events, educate attendees on proper recycling techniques, and show how easy and beneficial recycling and environmental initiatives can be. This is a hands-on position that is open to all ages and abilities; an eye-opening chance to see the change we can all make. Read more about other volunteer positions and opportunities.

Thank you in advance and we look forward to having you on our green team!
