Have you or your staff ever wanted to experience Canada’s northern and remote regions? If you have experience recycling end-of-life vehicles or appliances, this could be your chance!
- Heavy equipment
- Snow machines
Volunteers with the “Right Stuff”
- Well versed in vehicle or appliance decommissioning techniques;
- Certified to remove and handle refrigerants (mandatory for appliance recyclers, asset for vehicle recyclers);
- Patient and comfortable teaching and mentoring a small team of community members who have limited knowledge of decommissioning techniques;
- Willing and able to do decommissioning work outdoors with tools and equipment suited for remote context;
- Robust travelers, who don’t mind rugged conditions; and,
- Keen on job-site safety and willing to speak-up to ensure the job is done right.
Trips are all expenses paid; travel costs, food and accommodation in the community are funded by the program. Scout will also coordinate logistics related to project travel, but will expect volunteers to plan their own transportation to and from the airport they will be departing from.
All Scout needs from you is a willingness to donate your time and lend your expertise to make a real difference in a community!
Timing and Locations
Tundra Take-Back projects have been executed nation-wide, from British Columbia to Labrador, with locations varying every year. As a result, Scout cannot guarantee travel to specific regions.
Typically, projects are executed in the warmer, drier summer months (July-September). However, we have also traveled to communities as late as mid-October.
