Public Works Department Environmental Sustainability has a variety of volunteer opportunities each year to help make Ventura’s Environment even better. No experience is necessary; City staff will provide training. Some of the volunteer opportunities available are:
- Video Production Assistants: Assisting in taping and production of “Ventura’s Environment” (a weekly half-hour cable TV program produced by Ventura Public Works that examines environmental conservation issues in Ventura)
- Household Hazardous Waste Helpers: Checking-in participants and directing traffic at quarterly Household Hazardous Waste events (four Saturdays per year).
- Business Recycling Ambassadors: Assisting Ventura businesses to implement and maintain recycling programs.
- Recycling Research Assistants: Collecting data through field studies of recycling habits of Ventura residents and businesses. Data collected will guide City staff in making program decisions and revisions.
