Be a Waste War­rior

Hastings Leader - - News -

Fol­low­ing on from a suc­cess­ful Hawke’s Bay In­ter­na­tional Marathon, the En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre has been en­gaged to man­age the waste for two events in Oc­to­ber.

The first is Waka Ama Long Dis­tance Na­tion­als at Napier on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 5 and Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 6. The sec­ond is the Hawke’s Bay A&P show from Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 17 to Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

The En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre is look­ing for vol­un­teer Waste War­riors to help the or­gan­is­ers of both events on their zero waste event jour­ney.

Each event has dif­fer­ent start times with a fin­ish time of 5pm for both. Vol­un­teers are ex­pected to work two-hour shifts, with dou­ble shifts avail­able. The role of a Waste War­rior is:

As­sist the pub­lic to place their lit­ter into the cor­rect com­post, re­cy­cling or land­fill bin.

Keep the grounds at fin­ish line and en­ter­tain­ment area clear of rub­bish.

If you have a ready smile, like in­ter­act­ing with peo­ple and care for our en­vi­ron­ment you could be a Waste War­rior. Equip­ment and full train­ing is pro­vided so you don’t have to know much.
