For those of you who don’t know, “Recycling Away from Home”, or RAH, is a joint project involving Sierra Club, Marquette Neighborhood Association, Wil-Mar Center and other community groups and activists. The goal is to provide recycling and waste reducation tools, volunteers, support and education for neighborhood festivals and events in and around Madison. We’re also trying to take the next step and move to composting and Zero Waste events. (Wouldn’t that be cool!) With your assistance, we can help communities take the next step.

Be a part of the recycling team! Since the city does not provide recycling services at most neighborhood events, RAH takes the task of setting up recycling bins, checking and replacing bags during the day, and then tearing down after the event. It’s not hard work, and you can often drink beer, listen to music, watch  people and enjoy the festival while you do it!

Your help is needed to help collect compost, recyclables and trash. You can not only do good, but feel good – and get free refreshments care of Summerfest!

Volunteer shifts are Saturday from 1 – 3 pm, 3 – 5 pm, 5 – 7 pm, 7 – 9 pm and 8 – 10 pm, and on Sunday from 2 – 4 pm, 4 – 6 pm, and 6 – 8 pm. Sign up now online at Volunteer Spot for one or more shifts.
