Abstract: 

Volunteering for environmental community service projects provides an opportunity for people of all ages and skill levels to enjoy new experiences, meet new people, learn new skills and put ideas and talents to work while doing their part in protecting the environment. This guide contains examples of volunteer projects related to solid waste management--recycling, reuse, composting and disposal--a list of organizations that are involved in environmental issues and service projects, and a glossary of environmental terms. We hope the guide inspires and motivates people to "make a difference" in the environment by participating in a volunteer program or starting one of their own.
