Environmental Center & SW Colorado Council of Governments Regional Waste Audit Internship

The FLC Environmental Center has partnered with the Southwestern Colorado Council of Governments to try and improve recycling efforts in our region. Currently, our area’s high dependence on drop off programs, ineffective messaging and inconsistent programming has meant that our recycling programs are not meeting their environmental or economic potential. It is estimated that we do not capitalize on an annual $2.1 million in recycling revenue each year. To address this issue, SWCCOG is working on a grant to explore the feasibility of a Hub-and-Spoke model recycling program. The Waste Audit Internships will play a pivotal role in providing the data to help establish the viability of such a program. 

Pay Scale$10/hour 

Start Date: September 17, 2014


To apply, please submit a current resume and cover letter to SWCCOG Executive Director, Miriam Gillow-Wiles at director@swccog.org by September 1st. Position open until filled.
