Adopt-A-Street – Be a block captain and help maintain your own street. Join the SF Public Work’s Adopt-A-Street Program to receive cleaning supplies and provide you with best practices to maintain your block.
Cleanup Captain - Learn how to run a cleanup and join the roster of Cleanup Captains. Then sign up to lead cleanups that fits your schedule and availability.
Substitute Cleanup Captain - Sometimes our regular cleanup organizers are unable to lead their scheduled cleanup and we need someone to fill in for them. Sign up to be on a list to be notified when we need a sub.
Tabling – Help us get the word out about Refuse Refuse by running an info table at farmers markets, events, grocery stores, or busy intersections. We’ll teach you best practices and provide all the materials needed.
Post Flyers – Many of our volunteers learned about Refuse Refuse from a flyer posted in their neighborhood. Help us post flyers for to promote upcoming cleanups.
Door Hangers – We distribute info about ways that residents can help keep the city clean. We need help placing door hangers in every neighborhood.
Graphic Design - We have online and print design content that we need on occasion. Lend your design skills to illuminate our cause.
Fundraising – We apply for grants and seek sponsorships to fund our campaign. Join a team of volunteers that helps write grant proposals for various funding opportunities. No prior experience required.
Dog-Owner Outreach – Dog owners have an extra incentive to keep the streets clean and safe for their pets. If you own a dog, help us spread the word about Refuse Refuse to other dog owners.
Butt-Cans – We repurpose canned good cans into ashtrays that smokers can use to responsibly dispose of their cigarette butts. Help us prepare butt-cans and help place them wherever butts are being littered.
