Volunteer As a Recycling Block Captain

Become part of a grassroots volunteer network and support the Blue Cart Recycling Program. The City invites residents who live in a Blue Cart area to help spread the word about the program to their neighbors, answer questions, and provide feedback to staff about how the program is working in your area.

Give as little or as much of your time as you’re able. In exchange, we provide you with:

  • A monthly email update that includes current recycling rates, events, and initiatives.
  • Tips on how to reach out to your neighbors and tools, such as lawn signs and introduction cards to do so.
  • Information to help you accurately answer recycling related questions.
  • Access to knowledgeable staff to help you resolve issues and further educate you about the program.

Help us build a successful Blue Cart recycling program in your area, reduce the amount of waste in our landfills, encourage new business markets and outlets for recycled products and provide for the safety of our children, families and city workers by eliminating and/or reducing hazards in our garbage.

Become a Recycling Block Captain today or call 312.744.5702 and leave your name, address and phone number and a staff member will return your call.
