Volunteer as a Compost Monitor!

We are seeking interesting members of the public who want to get involved in volunteering at the high school or the Lincoln school. Compost Monitors will educate students during lunch on proper composting and waste disposal methods, as well as maintain the waste bins to reduce contamination. If you would like to volunteer your time and support our commitment to composting please contact Chaimaa Medhat, Assistant Recycling Coordinator at cmedhat@brooklinema.gov.
