Join fellow waste reduction enthusiasts and become an advocate for the three Rs in your community as a Master Recycler (and Composter!) in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.
Master Recyclers are trained on waste prevention, recycling and composting through an extensive eight week course featuring experts from industry and field trips to local waste processing and recycling facilities.
Once training is complete, participants are guided to invest 30 volunteer hours in the community doing things like: staffing booths and recycling stations at events, creating a radio show, neighbourhood cleanup recycling projects, and educating schools, communities or stratas. When they have completed volunteer hours, participants become Certified Master Recyclers and are encouraged to continue their community outreach.
Class locations to be announced. Classes will be held in the Vancouver area. Past class spaces have been at community centers, professional schools, maker spaces and local businesses.
Registration Requirements:In order to complete the course, you must be able to attend 7 out of 8 classes and complete 30 hours of community engagement. If you are unable to commit to completing the course in advance, please do not register and allow others to do so.
