Volunteer with PRC!

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on March 12, 2018

PRC works year-round to protect Pennsylvania’s resources for future generations through our education programs, watershed protection installations, collection events, zero waste services, and much more. In the spring, summer, and fall months we kick our programs up a notch, offering multiple events per week to divert and reduce waste!

We need your help! PRC relies on volunteers to help us distribute recycling bins, collect hard to recycle materials from community members, install rain gardens and rain barrels and much more!

Make a difference in your communities! Volunteer with PRC!

  • Collection Events – We’re looking for volunteers to help with our Household Chemical Collection Events, Hard-to-Recycle Collection Events, ReuseFest, and our Drug Take-Back Days! Volunteers will help direct traffic, interact with the public, take user surveys and more! (Volunteer opportunities available in Allegheny, Beaver, Cambria, Fayette, and Washington Counties.)
  • Waste Diversion and Education – Our Zero Waste PA program needs help making some of Pittsburgh’s best events green! Volunteers help educate participants, fight litter, and seperate materials to be recycled or composted instead of trashed! (Volunteer opportunities available in Allegheny County)
  • Watershed Protection – We need volunteers to help us protect Pennsylvania’s watersheds by reducing stormwater runoff increasing natural water filtration! Volunteers will assist in building rain gardens and educating the public. (Volunteer opportunities available in Delaware County.)
  • Recycling Bin Distribution – We need volunteers to help us increase recycling rates and fight contamination in Pittsburgh! We will be educating community members and distributing recycling bins in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. (Volunteer opportunities available in Allegheny County.)
