Help King County promote recycling and waste reduction and see Marymoor concerts for free
July 8, 2011 · 10:45 AM
King County Parks is once again seeking volunteers for its Marymoor Recycling/Composting Volunteer Crew at this summer’s Concerts at Marymoor series. As in past years, volunteers receive free entry and parking to the shows at which they volunteer.
Now in its fifth year, this program reduces the impacts of hosting large, popular outdoor events such as the Concerts at Marymoor. Volunteers are on hand to promote recycling and composting by teaching concert-goers about sorting their trash and food waste and help keep the Marymoor concert venue free of litter. Through this program, King County Parks has been able to divert more than half the waste generated from going to the landfill.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, and no experience is necessary, as training is provided on site. A minimum commitment of two concerts is preferred, with each shift lasting four hours. Start times vary with each concert. Groups and families are welcome to volunteer together.
Volunteers are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, and interested volunteers are encouraged to sign up and submit their concert requests right away.
As part of its ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship, King County Parks has also worked with the food vendors, who have voluntarily agreed to use recyclable and compostable cups, utensils, and food service items.
