We are in need of Rubbish Wranglers and General Volunteers!
Rubbish Wranglers have a passion for recycling, composting and generally reducing waste going to landfills. Rubbish Wranglers will be stationed at each recycling/composting/trash collection site throughout the event site. Their primary job is to help educate the public by assisting them with determining which container is appropriate for their waste. In addition to educating the attendees, the goal is to ensure we are recycling or composting everything possible.
General Volunteers provide support for a variety of event tasks including exhibitor load in and load out, general manual labor, assisting with merchandise sales, etc.
When you sign up, a member of our team will send you will an additional form to complete. Please reach out to the opportunity coordination below with any questions!
In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville:
- Hands On Nashville recommends that unvaccinated individuals in the following groups avoid volunteering for in-person opportunities (due to elevated risk level): ages 65 and up, those with health conditions or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system).
- Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.
If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to hon.org and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help!
Please be aware that projects may be canceled or rescheduled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
