During Manresa Move-In you will be encouraging new students and their families to recycle their move-in materials (i.e. cardboard, books, boxes, etc.) and directing them to the appropriate containers. This is a great way for those passionate about the environment to assist our new students! We need volunteers to help out with a few different jobs. A truck and two staff will be picking up cardboard from each dumpster area on a route and taking cardboard to compactor and baler. The jobs are: a) Give info card to cars and welcome them. B) Guard dumpsters (4) and divert cardboard. C) Thank you gift of chico bags to participants. D) Move cardboard into compactor and run system at Fenwick. Anyone can volunteer for two hours or more.
