Event Waste & Recycling Services
Employment

Fall 2014

Thank you to all of our 2014 Crew and Volunteers for what has been one of our busiest and most successful seasons to date!

Our hiring period for paid crew this season has ended. We are, however, ALWAYS accepting new volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering for Clean Vibes at any upcoming event, or just interested in keeping up with all things Clean Vibes related, it's as easy as becoming a member of the Clean Vibes Volunteer Database!

We will send out an email to our database in the spring when paid crew applications are available on the website (application period is February through March) and when we begin posting volunteer registrations for summer events. You may create a profile in the database at any time to receive these emails.


Please continue reading to discover how you can become a Clean Vibes Volunteer at any of our Upcoming Events.

Volunteer Positions


Join Clean Vibes as a Volunteer and help spread the clean vibe at your favorite festival! Clean Vibes is dedicated to educating fans about recycling and the importance of environmental stewardship. We believe that every person can make a difference and we rely on dedicated volunteers who are interested in inspiring others. To be a volunteer you must work a set amount of hours - usually a total of 4-10 hours/day within a specific shift time is required. Volunteer shifts are usually during and/or after the show, we do not often offer pre-festival opportunities. Please refer to the descriptions below to learn about the types of volunteer opportunities we offer.

If you have volunteered with Clean Vibes in the past and you are already a member of the Clean Vibes Volunteer Database then you do not need to create a new profile, you can use your email address to login and register for any open event. If you are new to Clean Vibes, you can create a profile and instantly register for any open event, there is no "acceptance" period.



Benefits of volunteering include:
  • Admission to the event. For most events, volunteers will be required to submit a fully refundable deposit equal to the cost of a ticket as well as a non-refundable administrative fee. Deposits are normally refunded within 14-21 days of completion of volunteer shifts. Please refer to the Clean Vibes Volunteer Database for more information on the deposit requirement for each event.
  • The satisfaction of helping to make a difference!

Additional benefits (depending on the event) MAY Include:
  • Meals while working
  • Free event t-shirt (check specific event listing as some events do not supply t-shirts)
  • Preferred camping (depending on time of arrival)

Once you have created a volunteer profile in our database, you will be able to read which positions are available for each event and register to attend as a Clean Vibes Volunteer.

These are the types of volunteer opportunities we offer:

DURING SHOW CLEAN-UP - While the exact times and number of hours will vary by event, During Show Volunteers are normally required to work one 4 to 7 hour shift on each day of the festival. They will spend their shift assisting the Clean Vibes crew in picking up loose litter on the ground and cleaning the concert area in preparation for continued entertainment. This position requires bending and stooping as well as lifting bags of refuse and recycling. Depending on the event, During Show Volunteers may spend a portion of their shift sorting recycling and/or compost and distributing bags to campers.

NIGHTLY AFTER SHOW CLEAN-UP - While the exact times and number of hours will vary by event, Nightly After Show Clean-up Volunteers are normally required to work one 4 to 6 hour shift at the conclusion of a daily, non-camping event. They will spend their shift assisting the Clean Vibes crew in picking up loose litter on the ground and cleaning the concert area after the fans have left the area. This position requires A LOT of bending and stooping as well as lifting bags of refuse and recycling.

POST EVENT CLEAN-UP - Looking for an opportunity to volunteer but still be able to enjoy the ENTIRE event uninterrupted? Post Event Clean-up could be your key! Post Event Volunteers are normally required to work two 8 to 10 hour shifts after the conclusion of the entire event. These volunteers will assist the Clean Vibes crew in picking up loose litter on the ground and consolidating piles. This position requires bending and stooping as well as lifting bags of refuse and recycling. Depending on the event, Post Event Volunteers may spend a portion of their shifts sorting recycling and/or compost.

TRASH TALKER© - At select events we offer positions for what we call our "Trash Talkers©". The Clean Vibes "Trash Talker©" Volunteers are asked to work a daily shift during the festival that is normally 5 to 6 hours. Volunteers will staff waste reclamation centers located throughout the festival grounds and encourage festival attendees to dispose of their waste in the appropriate receptacles - recycling, compost, or landfill. These volunteers will have the opportunity to interact directly with the festival attendees to promote environmental responsibility.

*BE AWARE! Each position requires some level of physical activity, often in summer heat conditions. Each position involves interaction with festival food and beverage waste. Some clean-up volunteers have been surprised at the amount of bending over and stooping that is required of them for the clean-up volunteer positions. Some Trash Talker© Volunteers have been surprised that standing in one place can be hard on your legs. We encourage all volunteers to arrive for their shift a little early and do some light stretching to get ready!

Please refer to the descriptions for each event and the positions available in the Clean Vibes Volunteer Database.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age on the day of check-in. Some events require volunteers to be at least 21, please see event listings for specific age requirements.

Please note that you DO NOT need to purchase a ticket to any event for which you are registered as a Clean Vibes volunteer. Your successful deposit ensures your admission to the event. In MOST cases we will not be mailing tickets, Volunteers will check-in at a predetermined place on site to obtain credentials. We are NOT able to refund any ticket that has been previously purchased!
