A Non-Profit Transforming Waste into Resources Menu


Do you have extra time to give back? WasteCap volunteers can get their hands dirty while helping preserve historic materials and giving back to the local Milwaukee community. Volunteers are critical to keeping warehouse operations running.

February Waste Audit

Have you ever wondered what happens to all that trash? Now's your chance to get your hands dirty while getting a behind the scenes look at a waste audit.

WasteCap needs volunteers to sort and weigh various materials during a waste audit happening Friday, February 2 from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Volunteers are welcome to stay for a few hours or the entire day.
