4R Waste Ambassador Program

The City of Brandon is happy to launch the 4R Waste Ambassador Program sponsored by Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba.

If you are an environmentally-minded individual with a keen interest in the 4 R’s of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink, the City of Brandon is looking to you to be part of its multi-year community ambassador pilot program aimed at waste diversion!

Thanks to funding provided by Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Inc., the 4R Waste Ambassador Program is a three-year public education pilot project that is now actively recruiting volunteer ambassadors. The program will provide training and resources to volunteer community ambassadors, who will then be encouraged to seek out community events, schools, and service group functions (following Manitoba Public Health COVID-19 protocols) to help educate and inform on municipal waste diversion programs. Together, with its ambassadors, the City of Brandon is looking to better educate residents on “what goes in what bin” to improve waste, recycling, and organic diversion rates in the community and to increase efficiencies at the Eastview Landfill.

Volunteers will be trained to help educate community members about the City's waste diversion programs and become certified 4R Waste Ambassadors. Ambassadors are encouraged to volunteer 30 hours over the course of the year. Involvement can be as simple as putting up posters in your workplace, apartment complex, neighbourhood, and answering questions, or it can be larger scale such as organizing a battery drive for recycling. The extent of involvement is entirely up to you!

To apply, please fill out the on-line application below and if you have any questions or concerns please email 4rwasteambassador@brandon.ca
