The GreenTeam is a dedicated group of New Yorkers pitching in to reduce the ecological footprint of public events in parks.

Join us!

The GreenTeam currently seeks Recycling Volunteers to help out at Pumpkin Festival, which will take place this year on Saturday, October 29, at Central Park at the Bandshell Area (72nd Street).

Recycling Volunteers will:

  • Work in pairs and small teams to collect recyclables throughout the event.
  • Teach event visitors about recycling and other environmental programs in New York City.
  • Compete to win prizes for the most recyclables collected at the event.

Sign up below to volunteer with the GreenTeam at Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, October 29th at Central Park! The volunteer commitment is from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and will include a break to give volunteers a chance to enjoy the event.
