Zone Managers are responsible for the overall sanitation of a specific area within French Quarter Festival. There are 10 Zones spaced throughout the festival footprint.
Zone Managers will have two primary
responsibilities: 1.) Direct volunteers and assist the public in the proper sorting of waste into the appropriate waste
streams: compost, recycling, and landfill, and 2.) Ensure the cleanliness and proper function of all areas within your
zone, including multiple FQF-owned sorting stations, and auxiliary waste cans. When waste cans become full ZoneManagers will communicate with sanitation staff via radio, and may be asked to assist them switching out trash cans or replacing bags.
Zone Managers will be expected to do rounds of their Zone, and will be on their feet for much of the
festival.
