About

Help the North Fulton Community Recycle Their Materials this Earth Day! Our recycling center is the only one in Sandy Springs, so ensuring we're able to continue our work taking care of the lifecycle of an item is essential, hard work, but it is YOU that makes all the difference!

By volunteering, you are helping community members recycle their materials at our Sandy Spring Recycling Center and continue to Keep North Fulton Beautiful. Guide customers to the correct bin for their recyclables, assist in collecting item donations, and bale cardboard so that our materials are ready to be reduced, reused, and recycled.

Dress: Please dress in comfortable protective clothes for that day's weather conditions and ensure that you have closed-toe shoes. You will be outdoors for the duration of this opportunity and working in close proximity to heavy items, motor vehicles, and machinery. We want you to be comfortable and safe! Please also bring your own clearly-marked water bottle.
 

COVID-19 Precautions: All volunteers will be outdoors, wearing masks, and adhering to social distancing guidelines. Hand sanitizer will also be available. By volunteering for this opportunity, you agree to abide by these rules during this service opportunity.

 

School credit and age restrictions: If you would like to get credit for your volunteer hours to submit to your school, please visit your school’s volunteer service coordinator to learn about their preferred method of verification (many schools have a school-specific portal you will need to log on to). Volunteers 16-17 of age must have a guardian co-sign a liability form. Volunteers 16 and under must also have a chaperone 21+ years old present with them during their service (one chaperone for every three under-16 year-olds present).
