The Environmental Promoters Program is a partnership with housing residents, Home Forward, Metro, and local governments.  We work with interested residents across different multifamily sites in the Metro region with the mutually agreed upon goals of improving recycling, waste reduction, green cleaning and hazardous waste reduction opportunities on their housing sites. This program is flexible and community driven, and provides the opportunity for participants to gain leadership and paid training and job experience.   

To date, this program has supported residents in:

  • Improving overall recycling and waste reduction systems on multifamily housing sites

  • Improving recycling in community rooms

  • Leading projects related to waste prevention, such as clothing swaps, garage sales, and food waste prevention projects

  • Facilitating workshops related to recycling and green cleaning 

  • Handing out educational resources related to waste prevention, recycling, and healthy homes. 

  • Connections to careers in waste reduction and recycling

 

Since this program started in 2019, the Environmental Promoters have reached over 800 community members.
