Steamboat briefs: Zero Waste Initiative seeks volunteers for free concert
August 20, 2010
Steamboat Springs — Yampa Valley Sustainability Council's Zero Waste Initiative is looking for volunteers to work two-hour shifts at Friday's Free Summer Concert Series show, the Emmitt-Nershi Band. Volunteers will help concert-goers sort recyclables and compostables so trash is reduced to a minimum. Shifts are from 5 to 7 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., and all volunteers receive a free meal. Any local nonprofit that provides eight or more volunteers for the event will earn a $100 donation for its organization. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Also at Friday's concert, LIFT-UP of Routt County will collect nonperishable food items and donations.
