ZWS recruiting volunteer ‘army’

Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS) is to recruit 1,000 volunteers to boost its waste reduction message to the public.

The body is offering funding to community organisations to help co-ordinate volunteer groups. Members would be required to engage with the public with information about how to reduce waste. 

Community groups, environmental networks, student organisations, local authorities and third sector organisations are all being invited to apply for the cash.

The new recruits will bolster ZWS’s existing volunteer network of more than 700 people in 50 areas across Scotland.

“We know that people all over Scotland care about the environment and that hundreds are willing to give their time freely to help spread the zero waste message,” said Iain Gulland, left, ZWS’ chief executive.

“This ‘army’ of volunteers can have a huge impact, from reducing food waste, which can save the average family hundreds of pounds a year, to passing on and learning skills that mean people can repair and re-use more everyday items.”
