The Department of Public Works is always looking for volunteers to assist our Parks Division, as well as our Recycling Division in many projects and/or events around the City. Volunteering is a great way to make a positive impact in your community. If you are interested in volunteering, we kindly ask you to complete the form below.

Public Works has a limited amount of supplies (basic hand tools) for volunteer events.  We also provide trash collection after the event.
