VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: OCCA is once again organizing volunteers to assist at Household Hazardous Waste Day. Volunteers will primarily help with latex paint recycling, but may also be asked to help direct traffic, unload cars, break down cardboard, and with other tasks as needed. This is fun way to help out the community. To sign up for a volunteer shift, use the program sign-up form and select the shift that suits your schedule. Note, volunteers are only required for the September 21 collection. Thank you!
