The NC Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance is working with the NC Department of Agriculture to coordinate recycling stations for the collection of plastic bottles and aluminum cans throughout the fairgrounds during the 2008 State Fair. We are seeking volunteers to help staff these stations to prevent contamination of the recyclables. The fair will be held in Raleigh off Blue Ridge Road Thursday, October 16, 2008-Sunday, October 26, 2008.
There will be 3 recycling stations throughout the fairgrounds that need 2 volunteers per station per shift. The stations will be located by Dorton Arena, the Midway and by the Village of Yesteryear. The shifts will be 3 hours each starting at 10AM and ending at 10PM. Volunteers will NOT need to haul or sort recyclables but will be asked to communicate with the public about sorting their recyclables from regular trash. Volunteers will be given:
1. A worker day pass to get into the fair for free,
2. A parking pass (if you sign up to work 2, 3 hour shifts – they do not need to be consecutive shifts) ,
3. Fair t-shirt, and
Keep in mind, parking is very limited and using the Park and Ride may still be your best option to get to the fairgrounds. Bus passes may be available.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete this survey with the preferred days and times you can work, along with where you want to be stationed. NC DPPEA will contact you closer to the event to confirm your date, time, station and directions to the Fairgrounds.
