Volunteers needed for recycling education at Ethnic Expo

The city of Columbus is looking for volunteers to help educate the public on new compost bins that will appear for the first time at Ethnic Expo.

The city has added the compost bins to the waste and recycling receptacles in the dining areas. The city is looking for volunteers willing to work two-hour shifts in the tents to explain what should go into each bin.

Officials are asking that you don’t cross contaminate the materials going into the bins so that the waste is accepted by recycling facilities.

Ethnic Expo is Friday and Saturday on the streets around City Hall in downtown Columbus. You can get more information and sign up for the volunteer shifts on the city website at columbus.in.gov.
