The City of Brandon is happy to launch the 4R Waste Ambassador Program sponsored by Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba.
If you are an environmentally-minded individual with a keen interest in the 4 R’s of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink, the City of Brandon is looking to you to be part of its multi-year community ambassador pilot program aimed at waste diversion!
Thanks to funding provided by Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Inc., the City of Brandon is pleased to launch the 4R Waste Ambassador Program, a three-year public education pilot project for which it is now actively recruiting volunteer ambassadors. The program will provide training and resources to volunteer community ambassadors, who will then be encouraged to seek out community events, schools, and service group functions (following Manitoba Public Health COVID-19 protocols) to help educate and inform on municipal waste diversion programs. Together with its ambassadors, the City of Brandon is looking to better educate residents on “what goes in what bin” to improve waste, recycling, and organic diversion rates in the community and to increase efficiencies at the Eastview Landfill.
The City of Brandon is looking to train volunteers to be 4R Waste Ambassadors to help educate community members about the City's waste diversion programs. Volunteers will receive training and resources to become a certified 4R Waste Ambassador. Ambassadors are encouraged to volunteer 30 hours over the course of the year. Involvement can be as simple as putting up posters in your workplace, apartment complex, neighbourhood and answering questions, or it can be larger scale such as organizing a battery drive for recycling. The extent of involvement is entirely up to you!
