Please Support the Cause - Volunteer Today!


Volunteering at the Lopez Dump is quick and easy (or dirty and hard!) and we have something fun to fit just about everybody.  (Ver página de voluntarios en español)

Did you know that the Dump depends on filling at least 8 volunteer shifts each day of site operation! We do this successfully, over and over, but always need more people to pitch in.

Even a small volunteer commitment helps us maintain free recycling, low garbage costs and the TIOLI for you and the rest of our community.


Typical tasks on-site include being stewards of the Recycling Plaza and Take it or Leave It. Many volunteers also operate behind the scenes.

We host two volunteer appreciation events each year which feature an amazing outdoor Texas BBQ and a most celebratory holiday potluck.

Our Volunteer Coordinator is Larissa Mansfield, who can be reached at Please contact Larissa with any questions about volunteering or fill out the online volunteer form now!

Volunteering is easy and fun!
