Clark County’s Composter Recycler program is offering a free, seven-week training series. The training will prepare new volunteers to be sustainability ambassadors in the community and experts in composting techniques, recycling, food-waste reduction, green cleaning and other sustainable living habits.
To apply to be a Composter Recycler volunteer, visit the Composter Recycler website. Applicants will be contacted by email to confirm participation.
The virtual classes will be held via Zoom and are scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning in February. In addition to the virtual classes, the training will include two in-person events — a tour of a transfer station and a hands-on composting field training — and weekly actionable homework assignments so volunteers can move toward a low-waste lifestyle.
The training dates and topics are: Feb. 1: backyard composting; Feb. 8: red worm composting; Feb. 15: other composting techniques; Feb. 22: composting science; March 1: low-waste living/green cleaning; March 8: recycling done right and March 15: tips, tricks and techniques to prevent food waste.
The Composter Recycler program educates the community about easy ways to reduce waste, prevent contamination in recycling and create healthier, greener homes. For more information, go to www.clarkcountycomposts.org, call 564-397-7333 or email email@example.com.
