Description

The goal of REDO is to close the loop in Utah so that used materials may be diverted from landfill, prevented from going into the environment, and will be transformed into valuable reusable resources.
To accomplish this, REDO's focus is on the following:

1. Decrease contamination in residential recycling systems
2. Educate the public about local recycling requirements and best practices
3. Build visibility through online platforms and at community events
4. Nurture youth leadership and support youth who create their own projects around zero-waste and recycling education

REDO currently has three board positions open.
The minimum expectation for REDO’s board members is to attend quarterly meetings (which can be attended virtually or via conference call). Board members are expected to serve 2-year terms. Board Members are expected to contribute a donation to REDO in an amount that is meaningful to them. Additional expectations for Board Members will be discussed during the application process.
Organization's Mission: Educating communities to recycle right.
REDO, which stands for Recycling Education and Development Organization, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that partners with schools, recycling facilities, community leaders, businesses and other organizations to promote effective recycling.
Organization's Programs and Services: Youth and Schools: REDO's top priority is to nurture youth leadership and education surrounding waste reduction. REDO organizes talks at schools throughout Utah to educate students about how they can make an impact in reducing waste and recycling right. REDO is also a member of USEE (Utah Society for Environmental Education) and provides Municipal Waste Curriculum Training to teachers so that they can bring these topics directly into the classroom.
Tabling Events: This aligns with REDO’s goal to encourage a more informed public and build visibility for our organization. At these events, volunteers collect emails and contact information from passionate individuals and enlist potential volunteers.

Green Business Development: REDO acts as a recycling consultant for businesses who need help creating waste reduction policies for their employees, installing signage and infrastructure, conducting sample sorts, and generally serving as a connection to the rest of the recycling community.
Residential Bin Labeling: REDO works with waste haulers, cities, and community leaders to lead bin labeling campaigns. REDO provides up-to-date recycling information in sticker form that is approved by cities and waste haulers so that residents know what they can and can't put into their curbside recycling bins. REDO's team ran a pilot project in the summer of 2019 to label over 1,800 bins in Cottonwood Heights in collaboration with a local Boy Scouts troop and Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District. The results were promising as contamination rates for that area dropped after the labels went on the bins.
Social Media Outreach: REDO puts forth content online to generate visibility for recycling and waste issues within Utah as well as the greater U.S.
Organization's Race, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Statement: As stated in Article I, Section 2 of REDO's bylaws: REDO is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific and education purposes.

Prior experience serving on a board is preferred but not necessary.
