Volunteer Opportunity

Love Recycling in South KC? Volunteer with Us, Any Wednesday!
Are you passionate about recycling? This is an excellent opportunity for retired folks to stay active and make a difference in the community!

Are you passionate about recycling? This is an excellent opportunity for retired folks to stay active and make a difference in the community! Help your community and the environment by volunteering at our Red Bridge Community Recycling Center! Recycling preserves forests; keeps oil, natural gas, and minerals in the ground; and prevents air and water pollution. Bridging The Gap’s Community Recycling Centers are essential because they accept items not recycled curbside and provide options to the many people who do not have recycling available at home.


This is an ongoing opportunity, Wednesday through Saturday, but we have a special need for Wednesday morning helpers at the Red Bridge location. Volunteers assist the recycling center site manager with various duties, such as breaking down cardboard, assisting patrons, etc. Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded "Bridging The Gap" shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares!


The Red Bridge Recycling Center is located at 5200 E. Red Bridge Rd., Kansas City, MO 64137 in the KCATA Park-and-Ride commuter parking lot.
