Over the past year, an exciting thing has been happening: recycling is rolling out at NYCHA developments citywide. As a partner in community engagement, GrowNYC has provided recycling education at workshops and events, aiming to change the way more than 400,000 New Yorkers take out the trash.
This winter, GrowNYC is launching a new volunteer program for NYCHA residents who want to see this program succeed. Through our Environmental Ambassadors program, we will train volunteers to educate neighbors about recycling at their developments. After completing two, 2-hour workshops, Environmental Ambassadors conduct 12 hours of local outreach to encourage participation in the NYCHA Recycles! Program. Volunteer benefits include field trips, gear, gift bags and a certificate of service signed by the DNSY commissioner and a NYCHA executive.
