Volunteers will be asked to guide the public in placing their recyclables and compostable trash into the proper receptacles. Material categories will be Landfill, Recycling, and Compostable Organics.

Volunteers will be provided with information to convey to the public about the Smithsonian’s recycling/composting effort and why it is important. Volunteers will also need to pull bags when full and replace liners at these stations. The recovery stations will have chairs and tents to provide shade and comfort to volunteers.

How to Apply: Visit our website at www.festival.si.edu/volunteer and follow the link to the application. There you will fill out a form so we can get all your information and this will create a volunteer account for you.
