BRIDGING THE GAP COMMUNITY RECYCLING CENTER
VOLUNTEER WAIVER OF LIABILITY,
AND PHOTO RELEASE
I am aware that working as a volunteer at the Kansas City Community Recycling Drop-off Center is a potentially dangerous activity.
I am in good physical condition and health,
and have properly conditioned myself, and have consulted with a physician, as appropriate,
regarding my participation as a volunteer.
I have no physical or psychological
medical conditions that would create risk(s) for myself or others in connection
with this volunteer activity. The volunteer work I may perform will take place in
parks or urban areas including streets, sidewalks on public and private property in residential
and/or commercial areas, with inherent dangers that may include, but are not limited
to, steep embankments, bodies of water, exposure to noxious plants such as poison ivy, snake or insect bites, contact
with potentially dangerous materials such as herbicide or dumped items and trash,
cuts or traumatic injuries from broken glass, limbs of bushes or trees or other
materials, falls, injuries related to uneven ground, exposed roots or loose footing,
the use of tools, contact with the general public, including but not limited to
vehicular traffic in and about the event, and the effects of weather
conditions, including high heat and/or humidity, cold, wind, snow, rain or ice.
In the event my volunteer activities take place through the use
of an automobile or other vehicle, such as shuttle transportation to a
worksite, or in an office or other setting I understand that there are certain additional
and different risks that arise in such atmospheres and this waiver and assumption
of risk is intended by me to include any and all such risks. Therefore, I expressly assume any and all
risks directly or indirectly associated with working as a volunteer at this event,
and accept personal responsibility for my own safety and for the safety of those
with me both on the premises and in traveling to and from this event and in my dealings
with the general public while working as a volunteer at this event and for any and
all damages of any kind resulting from injury whatsoever. If any of the activities
I may encounter appear to pose a risk that I am not comfortable with, I will refrain
from engaging in such activities.
Being aware of the above facts, and in consideration of being
a participant in Bridging The Gap' Community Recycling Program, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators or anyone else who might
claim on my behalf (collectively, "Releasor"), hereby release, waive and discharge all claims
against Bridging The Gap, Inc.,The City of Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City Missouri Parks & Recreation; their representatives, successors
or assigns (collectively, the "Releasees"), from and against any and all
claims, costs, losses and damages (including without limitation, all attorney's
fees) ("Claims") arising from or in connection with my participation as a Bridging The Gap volunteer, including without
limitation, the negligence of the Releasees, and/or of the other volunteers, participants,
spectators or other third parties. I will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the
Releasees from Claims arising from the undersigned's participation as a volunteer
or any breach of the undersigned hereunder. I promise that neither I nor any other Releasor
will sue the Releasees and further agree that if anyone is physically injured or
if property is damaged while I am engaging in, working for or otherwise participating
in the Community Recycling Program, neither I nor any other Releasor will have any right to make
a claim or file a lawsuit against the Releasees.
Additionally, I understand that photos may be taken during the
event I am participating in, and I hereby grant Bridging The Gap, Inc., and The City of Kansas City, Missouri the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish
photographs of me, or in which I may be included, without compensation, for editorial,
trade, advertising, and any other purpose and in any manner and medium; to alter
the same without restriction; and to copyright the same. I hereby release Bridging The Gap from all claims
and liability relating to said photographs.
I understand that Bridging The Gap
does not currently offer court-ordered or disciplinary community service and that
Bridging The Gap staff will not sign off on documents verifying service hours for
court-ordered or disciplinary service.
