Hi Park Friends! We are seeking volunteers for the Broad Street Run! We are looking for 200 volunteers to help make the Broad Street Run a zero waste event! Philacycle volunteers will be overseeing a tri-material waste station, directing runners/spectators to drop their trash in the appropriate bin (waste, compost, recycling). If you are interested in joining us, please check out the website below to sign up. And please feel free to spread the word about this volunteer opportunity to your networks! Thank you for helping us make Philly a more sustainable city :) https://www.recyclebank.com/philacycle/events/2018/BlueCrossBroadStreetRun

    Philacycle - Events - 2018 Blue Cross Broad Street Run
    When you arrive, look for a Philacycle representative who will help give you instructions and direct you to one of the Waste Stations. Philacycler Volunteers are responsible for manning one tri-material waste station, located along the route. Waste stations are comprised of three bins: waste, compost, and recycling.
