Join the SCARCE Team!

Keep valuable materials out of the landfill while providing kids, teachers, and community members with educational supplies they need to succeed. Everything you do at SCARCE will help protect our air, soil, and water. 

We are currently welcoming fully vaccinated individuals, including adults who can volunteer 2-3 hours per week or high school students who can commit a minimum of 10 hours over the course of the summer.

If you would like to volunteer at our facility, please complete the application at the bottom of this page. We also have other opportunities: organizing a collection, assisting at outdoor community recycling events, or picking up items to sort at home. Please contact Rose at rose@scarce.org if you have any questions about SCARCE’s volunteer program. Thank you for your interest in helping people and the planet!
