Happy volunteers working at the Reuse Centre

Make a difference for your community—and the planet.

Volunteers with Edmonton's Waste Services promote environmental responsibility by helping residents reduce their waste.
Note: A Police Information Check may be required for some roles.

Become a Master Composter Recycler

Master Composter Recycler volunteers are Edmonton's waste reduction experts. They volunteer by teaching friends, family, neighbours and co-workers about sustainable waste habits.

This is a "learn and serve" volunteer program, offered annually. Volunteers complete 40 hours of free training, followed by at least 35 hours of volunteering.

Volunteer at the Reuse Centre

The Reuse Centre accepts various items from Edmonton residents free of charge and makes them available to organizations and individuals for use. Many items are not accepted for reuse elsewhere.

Volunteers are essential to the Reuse Centre. They promote reuse, educate Edmontonians and help sort donations. Individual and group positions are available year round.

Volunteer at Compost 'S cool

Compost 'S cool is an interpretive centre between the John Janzen Nature Centre and Fort Edmonton. The natural assets of the site need specific maintenance, like hand weeding and careful mulching and transplanting.

Volunteer at one of our Weed Workshops, or book a group activity for your business team. You'll help keep the river valley tidy while learning about noxious weeds, native plants, compost, and healthy soil.
