Join NCRA & Oakland Recycles Saturday, 11/21!




The Northern California Recycling Association (NCRA) is going door-to-door in Oakland to promote recycling and composting among Oakland multi-family residents and we need your help! Are you available to help us get the word out on November 21?

In partnership with Oakland Recycles, recycling workers from recycling workers ILWU Union Local #6, and the Alameda Sustainable Recycling campaign, NCRA will visit apartment-dwellers in Oakland to let them know more about changes to their waste collection services that became effective July 1st.  The goal of this outreach is to assist the city of Oakland in reaching Zero Waste by promoting the benefits of composting and recycling. We also hope to develop community pride, increase awareness about the new curbside compost collection program, and clarify questions about what is accepted in the recycling and compost bins.

Volunteers should be prepared to walk up and downstairs and will likely walk 1 mile or more over the course of the day. Hats, sunscreen and water are recommended. Light refreshments in the morning and lunch will be provided as well as all other outreach materials. If planning to attend, please RSVP to the email address below. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

Date: Saturday, Nov 21st

When: 9am-10am volunteer training, 10am-1pm door-to-door outreach, 1pm-2pm lunch and debrief

Location: ILWU Local 6 Hall 99 Hegenberger Rd, Oakland, CA 94621

Organized by: Northern California Recycling Association

Please RSVP if you can join: 510-320-3140 or EMAIL US

Volunteers Needed…

NCRA needs volunteers for a very wide variety of tasks. Some are quick and easy while others are complex with a steep but satisfying learning curves.

For example, the Activities Committee needs tour and meeting location suggestions, help with event set-up, check-in and clean-up, as well as pre event managers for food orders. Also, the Communications Committee needs reporters, photographers, writers and editorial assistants, as well as people willing to maintain the press list and conduct media follow-up and help maintain the website.
