Recycling Ambassador Program

Contact us

Become a Recycling Ambassador and help inspire your community to reduce waste. Recycling Ambassadors take a six-week training program to learn more about environmental health, waste systems and recycling. Recycling Ambassadors agree to volunteer 20 hours annually to encourage others to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Workshop topics include:

  • Waste systems in Ramsey County.
  • Yard waste, food waste, and composting.
  • Climate change.
  • Environmental justice.
  • Household hazardous waste.
  • General recycling.
