Recycling Ninjas Needed for Creemore Copper Kettle Festival (Creemore, ON)

Green Event Ninjas is recruiting a team of Recycling Ninjas to assist with the recycling and composting initiatives for the Creemore Copper Kettle Festival located at Mill Street, Creemore, ON.

Our goal is to help make the event as eco-friendly as possible by implementing a recycling and composting initiative and cleaning up the litter on the grounds after the event as quickly as possible.


  • $15.00 /hr


  • Saturday, August 24th

  • Morning, afternoon and full-day shifts available.



Recycling Ninjas will be expected to complete a 1-hour Health & Safety online training course prior to their first shift.


Recycling Ninjas will be picking up loose litter on the ground and working with the Green Event Ninjas team and fellow Recycling Ninjas to clear the venue and vending areas. This task involves bending, consolidating large bags of recycling and refuse, and lifting bags onto push carts, golf carts and trailers.

Recycling Ninjas will also spend a good portion of their shift hand-sorting the recycling and compost waste streams to maximize the event’s total waste diversion from landfill. This task involves prolonged periods of standing, opening bags and sorting their contents, and lifting bags. All appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided (i.e. protective gloves, face masks, safety goggles, etc.).


Recycling Ninjas will work with the Green Event Ninjas team members and fellow Recycling Ninjas to clear the venue and vending areas of all event litter and patron debris. This position entails walking, bending, lifting and handling event waste and recycling.

Water will be provided, in addition to scheduled breaks and lunch for longer shifts. Uniforms in the form of a cotton T-Shirt will be provided.
