Recycling Community Leader

Encourage your community to recycle every week with Green Community guidelines

Project Details

What we need

  • Join us for a 30 min briefing call (Zoom)
  • Familiarise with the Green Community guidelines and identify the nearest recycling/collection point or schedule
  • Create a simple collection point (e.g. bag/bin in your community area (e.g. home, office or school) or gather all the recyclables once per week from your community
  • Lead and invite your community (e.g. family/friends/colleagues/classmates) to recycle the types of recyclables, drop off the collected items to the recycle point every week
  • Target to encourage 5 people to join you in the first month, 10 people in the second and as many as you could in the third month (You can decide on the goals depending on your community size)
  • You'll also get opportunities to meet other Recycle Community Leaders and to mingle with like-minded friends!

Background

We are running a pilot program to empower volunteers to lead their own community projects/initiatives. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in starting a simple recycling initiative and to encourage their community (e.g. friends/colleagues/classmates) to get involved.

What we have

Green Community guidelines (https://www.wastereduction.gov.hk/en/community/crn_intro.htm) and other resources will be provided to help you kickstart the recycling initiative within your community. A briefing call will be provided and you will be working closely with our team during the whole project.

Why this is important

This helps us to get a better understanding on volunteer's interest and availability in leading their own community projects with easy and simple guidelines provided. We can also gain insights in ways to better encourage volunteerism within a community (office/school).
