You will need to be available from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Saturday, October 12th. With driving time of up to 45 minutes each way, you will be volunteering for 5½ hours and be back in Big Rapids by 1:15 p.m. The actual collection is from 9:00 to noon. Brief, simple training will be provided. Munchies provided by appreciative volunteer organizers.

Gas money will be provided. Please car-pool. Find some friends and volunteer!

This event will collect about two to three TONS (per site) of old paint, house cleaners, pesticides, batteries, used motor oil, mercury thermometers, etc., that would otherwise end up in landfills or in our groundwater. YOU will be helping the environment directly. Dress warm & smart!
