Volunteers Needed: Free Green Waste Disposal Events
May 17 @ 8:00 am - June 27 @ 5:00 pmFree
This program is a partnership between Nevada County Office of Emergency Services, Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District. Volunteer recruitment is made possible by Nevada County’s 211 Connecting Point!
VOLUNTEERS are needed to make this effort possible. Help us be Ready Nevada County by volunteering with us Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays now through June 27. Register online at 211 Connecting Point’s Volunteer Hub to assist in Alta Sierra, Penn Valley, or Grass Valley.
We will social distance and support a “no contact” collection.” For details call 211 or 1-833-DIAL211.
DUTIES: Volunteers at each collection site will coordinate traffic, collect participant information, track loads received using a tablet/iPad, answer questions, and perform an initial inspection to ensure invasive species (blackberry, Scotch broom, poison oak) are not in the loads of green waste.
QUALIFICATIONS & TRAINING:
- Must be 18 or older. Can be 16 or 17 if attending with an adult.
- Special measures will be put in place to ensure this is a no-contact event, keeping volunteers safe from potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus. This includes training delivered via video conference, or via YouTube. Completion of a short quiz will be required after the training, as well.
- We will train you on the use of the tablets/iPads to check-in residents and show you how to spot invasive species in loads of green waste.
- Fire Safe Council requires both liability and media releases (permission to use pictures of you doing the work)
