Volunteer in Southwestern PA
Volunteers are an essential part of each and every one of PRC’s collection events. Volunteering is a great way to make a positive impact on Pennsylvania’s environment – keeping dangerous and valuable materials out of our landfills, waterways, and public spaces. Without our volunteers PRC would not be able to offer the great services that we do to Pennsylvanians across the state.
Volunteers at our Collection Events you’ll participate in a brief training session prior to the start of the event, perform tasks such as set up, directing traffic, handing out educational materials, and more! Volunteers can work either full day or partial day shifts at our events, and will be provided with breakfast, lunch and refreshments for the day. The events run rain or shine so volunteers are advised to dress for the weather. Safety vests and gloves are provided to all volunteers. Check out our Event Calender to see all of PRC’s upcoming events.
Volunteers at our Recycling Bin Distribution Events will help residents of Pittsburgh’s Northside neighborhoods recycle more materials and reduce recycling contamination. Volunteers will help distribute recycling bins and educate residents about the importance and ‘how-tos’ of recycling in Pittsburgh.
