Volunteers

Hello there! At Green Chair Recycling, we love helping our community. In fact, we are a little community of individuals doing our best to make a difference. Join us to learn all about sustainability, gain hands-on experience, make friends and have lots of fun diverting waste with our amazing team. We have a variety of different positions so come take a look!

Green Chair is a locally owned, for-profit social enterprise dedicated to providing our community with simple and effective recycling solutions and educational opportunities. As a social enterprise, we strive to make the community stronger by supporting local events, businesses, clubs and groups. To learn more about us, visit the about us page.

From all of our volunteer opportunities, we hope to give the best experience possible and empower individuals to make a real impact in the community. For your hard work, you will also receive volunteer letters, fresh, organic, local meals as well as the chance to pitch and receive support for your own community initiatives. For continued commitment of over 30 hours, reference letters are also available by request.

Current Opportunities

If you have any inquiries about any of the opportunities or if you want to help in some other way, contact one of our volunteer coordinators at volunteers@gogreenchair.com. Happy recycling!

Event Volunteer

Our Recycling Volunteers attend community events, educate attendees on proper recycling techniques, and show how easy and beneficial recycling and environmental initiatives can be. Events we attend typically achieve 95% diversion rates from the landfill, which would not be possible without our team of Recycling Volunteers. 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.

To sign up, view our upcoming events and our calendar. Grab a friend, sign up for an interesting event, and prepare to have fun, learn, teach and soak up the event atmosphere. We hope to meet you soon!

Are you the organizer of a large group of individuals interested in volunteering? We would love to and be honored to have you. Contact us for events best suited for larger groups.
