Volunteer

Our Senior Advisor Ed tabling for us at a Cornell event.

Your help is needed in large & small ways in our all-volunteer group. We are always looking for:

  • Zero Waste Organizers and Ambassadors for upcoming events
  • Help with creating/editing digital images and videos – help urgently needed as of 3/23/22!
  • Participants in trash pickups
  • Canvassers for Ithaca / Finger Lakes Reduces BYO sticker program
  • A liaison to work with the city and county administration, the Ithaca City School District, Cornell and Ithaca College on Zero Waste initiatives
  • Volunteers for driving trucks for our future glass recycling program
  • Volunteer admins for Buy Nothing: Gifting with Integrity groups

Let’s work together!

Our core team meet every 4th Mondays of the month. If you are interested in joining, Please contact us, too! We’d love to get to know you.

We ask that we share the same philosophy when it comes to how to deal with our waste crisis. There are so many industry-backed false solutions – such as chemical recycling, WTE (waste-to-energy) incineration, autoclaves, bioplastics, direct air capture, mail-in plastic recycling, etc. Our group does not subscribe to those.


Our email address is zerowasteithaca@gmail.com.

Here’s also Contact Us form for your convenience.

Please get in touch so we can start working together.

Please mention which volunteering opportunities you are most interested in and a little about yourself!
