Compost and Recycling Education Coordinator
The Compost and Recycling Education Coordinator participates in a year-long term of service (1700 hours) supporting the Tennessee Environmental Council (TEC), an agency providing education for the improvement of Tennessee's environment, communities, and public health. The coordinator provides capacity building services for the Sustainable Tennessee program, advancing recycling, composting, and ecological restoration statewide. As Tennessee’s landfills reach capacity within the next decade, the need for widespread public education on composting and recycling has become imperative to our well-being. The Compost and Recycling Education Coordinator will develop, plan, and implement projects that engage Tennessee residents in practices of recycling, backyard composting, and watershed restoration. The coordinator serves as part of a 15-person cohort that receives skills training, professional development, and networking opportunities through a partnership between TEC and Hands On Nashville, Middle Tennessee’s volunteer resource center. Tennessee Environmental Council educates and advocates for the conservation and improvement of Tennessee’s environment, communities, and public health. For over forty years, the Council has been working to protect the environment in Tennessee. The Council’s efforts have been successful in protecting the Great Smoky Mountains, cleaning up the Pigeon River, reducing pollution from coal-fired power plants, and preventing degradation of high quality streams and the globally significant Duck River Watershed. HON’s AmeriCorps Program builds capacity for individuals and agencies to meet needs through volunteerism. Its AmeriCorps Program engages members in year-long terms of service both with HON and HON’s Community Partners. Hands On Nashville does not discriminate based on age, gender, skin color, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or other factors which deny the essential humanity of all people.
