The Purple Bin Program Volunteers

Volunteers will coordinate the pick up and drop off of recyclables in the Hearts of Purple (HOP) van. Training will be provided on where the bins are located and how we manage the program. Duties include emptying the containers and replacing the bin liners for 240L bins at various locations throughout the Gold Coast. At the end of the run the Volunteer is required to drive the van to either express recycling at Nerang or Currumbin to drop off the load where the recyclables will be counted by personnel at these locations, not by the HOP volunteers. Two volunteers are required in the van at all times for safety. There are other tasks which may be required which include food box preparation and delivery which will be discussed as needed. You must be a confident driver and able to lift the load of empty containers within the bins. This volunteer role is important in driving the program to offer assistance to the people who need us.
