Ground Score is an association of environmental workers who create and fill low-barrier waste management jobs. Ground Score is collectively organized and seeks to be radically inclusive, prioritizing work opportunities for those facing work and housing insecurity. Ground Score seeks to build a more environmentally and socially aware community, while also changing society's perceptions of what and who is considered valuable.

The types of jobs that we perform are:


  • Leading volunteer groups to collect litter

  • Event waste management including recyclables sorting 

  • Presenting at meetings or events

  • Can/bottle pickup for deposit 

  • Giving recycled craft workshops

Additional job ideas that we’d like the opportunity to perform are:

  • The formal sale of second-hand and upcycled goods (through flea markets, sidewalk vending, consignment, or otherwise)

  • Supporting the provision of reusable dishware at events

  • Conducting waste audits 

  • Training groups about waste reduction and social inclusion

  • On-site composting and waste sorting services

  • Diversion of reusable/bulky materials at collection events
