Volunteer with PRC

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on May 15, 2017

PRC needs your help!

We work hard to responsibly recycle and dispose of tricky materials like TVs, paint, tires, batteries and more, to protect local waterways from stormwater overflow, and to divert thousands of pounds from Pittsburgh’s biggest events through recycling, composting, reuse, and more! But we can’t do it alone!

At all of our events and programs, we rely on dozens of volunteers to help us with tasks such as directing traffic, building rain gardens, educating participants and much more! We need your help to make the positive impact on our environment and our local communities. Check out our volunteer opportunities below and sign up today!
