Garbage to Garden, founded in Portland, ME in 2012, provides residential and commercial curbside composting service and zero-waste event services throughout the greater Boston area and Southern Maine.
As the nation’s most subscribed to curbside composting service, we have been recognized nationally for our efforts in reducing food waste and private companies and municipalities from across the US reach out to us weekly to learn from what we are doing.
Our service is simple, participants receive a 6-gallon bucket to fill with compostable materials.
They place the bucket on the curb each week on trash day, and we collect it and swap it out with a clean bucket and, if requested, a bag of finished soil.
Check us out on our website, FaceBook, and Instagram to learn more about our services and the community we have created.
In August 2016, Garbage to Garden opened a satellite operation in Massachusetts. We are hiring a community outreach coordinator to help build the movement in the greater Boston area.
This individual will report directly to the Community Outreach Director and will be responsible for identifying promotional opportunities, implementing local door-to-door and tabling promotional efforts, and establishing relationships with retail partners and volunteer organizations.
For the right candidate there will be opportunities for additional work and responsibilities as the operation grows.
Please contact Phoebe, email@example.com to learn more.
Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from
dangerous heat waves and droughts to the record snowstorms of 2015. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.
That’s why we’re calling on our state’s leaders to repower Massachusetts with 100 percent clean, renewable energy.
But powerful special interests like the utility companies are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.
Environment Massachusetts is looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. As an intern you would be the coordinator for our statewide Student Activist Network at your school. You would be expected to work 4-7 hours per week from campus. There will be 1-2 days of travel to Boston to work with the Statewide Student Activist Network. The position is unpaid.
|Application Deadline: Open until positions are filled for the semester
