North Country Fair and Zero Waste Humboldt will be recruiting volunteers to assist in reducing waste at the 2018 North Country Fair. In the last few years, we’ve achieved amazing success and diverted 84% of items from the landfill!

Volunteers will be trained to monitor the quality of the recycling/composting stations and assist the public in the proper handling of their recyclable and compostable materials.

We’re seeking non-profit groups to join our volunteer efforts this year. Bring together 5-10 volunteers OR cover 15-30 hours of volunteer shifts and your non-profit group will qualify for a $75-150 donation! Please contact Monica Scholey to confirm your participation and use the link to sign up for shifts!

The 2018 North Country Fair takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 15th & 16th on the Arcata Plaza. Shifts are  3 hours.

Contact us at NCFZeroWasteCrew@gmail.com to find out more.  

Volunteers work 3-hour shifts and educate the public on what is compostable and what is recycling in an effort to achieve a Zero Waste event.  Volunteers will receive a training before their shift on what materials the vendors are using and coordinators will continue to check in throughout the shift.
