Opportunity Details

Recycling Revisited is a Registered not-for-profit organization. We are in our 10th year after reviving our original organization which pioneered recycling in Canada (1970-1983). That early organization had the name "Citizens' Committee for Pollution Control" (CCPC). Our new name as a registered Non-Profit is "Recycling Revisited Inc." Our Mission is to keep the CCPC story alive in public memory, for the purpose of inspiring citizens to take action on their current concerns about the environment in these days of climate change. We have a Board, a Development Committee, Action Groups,Volunteers and a group of CCPC veterans called "Friends of Recycling Revisited". 
As a small grassroots organization, you will find us friendly and supportive. We promote individual action for the environment to support resilience, while respecting individual self-management.

We are entering a phase of detailed preparation for our tree planting plan - to gradually build up opportunities for small groups or families in the general public to join a "Tree Planting Club" and engage in small plantings in one zone of Burlington. We will be engaging with the City of Burlington, specifically with the Park and Forestry Department. We are forming a planning committee for this new approach, and you would be welcome as a member of that group which will meet once a week at first, then meet less frequently as the public becomes more informed about how to sign on for the small plantings.

BenefitsIf you enjoy organizing paperwork & card files, organizing and distributing pamphlets, and setting up a variety of name lists for diverse purposes. As a volunteer, you will find us to be friendly, reasonable and supportive.
ClientsYou will be interacting with Board members and some loyal supporters, some students who have regular meetings, and a company called TerraCycle, that we are interacting with. We are creating a management group for tree planting, which promises to be popular but also in need of careful management.
