PART C: Volunteering

Santa Cruz Master Recycler volunteers are asked to serve a minimum of 20 hours/year (20 hours of service and 5 hours of continuing education credits). The purpose of 5 hours of continuing education credits (CE) is to stay current with industry and science-based information. Recycling and composting practices can change frequently. As City of Santa Cruz Master Recycler’s we try to be most accurate when talking to the public. There will be opportunities for CE through workshops, publications, webinars, e-newsletters etc.
