The TerraCycle Collection is expanding and needs YOUR help!
We currently have two work shifts, which fall on the second Wednesday of the month from 3:30 to 6:30p.m., and the fourth Saturday of the month 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
If these shift times do not work for you to become a squad member, we still want to hear from you as we are very interested in adding new collection times. Dedicated
FTOP workers are also welcome. If you can be on a shift more times than not, we
would definitely welcome you on shifts as much as you can schedule with us.
Info about the shift:
*Shifts are very stable, 12 shifts per year, no moving around the calendar
based on work week A, B, C. or D. Shifts are set for a particular day/time of
the month and do not change.
*Enjoy working your shift with like-minded environmentally conscious Coop
members, members you work with and members who drop off their recyclables.
*This shift is a very feel good shift knowing you are making a difference and
helping members to make a difference in improving our environment.
*The shift tends to go quickly as the collection is well received by members
and we tend to be busy throughout the shift.
*For most of the year, the collections are held outside and shift workers enjoy
*You will get your hands dirty—not unlike work on other shifts. We have
gloves available and you can go in periodically to wash your hands in the
*There will be a few shifts where weather may be of concern. We have a
policy to address hot, rainy, or frigid weather with consideration to workers’
comfort. More details are available if interested.
*The work of the shift does require a fair amount of standing and some light
lifting. At the end of each shift we carry or cart the boxes to the UPS store on
Flatbush and Seventh Aves
