Composter Recycler Program

Inspiring a greener future by sharing knowledge

The average American throws away 4.5 pounds of stuff each day. Across our nation, over 165 million tons of potentially usable material is landfilled each year. This represents a large cost both economically and environmentally. Why throw good things away? Diverting valuable materials can save money, create jobs, and foster a healthier environment.

The Composter Recycler Program educates the community about ways to reduce waste, recycle more, and re-think our impact on natural resources.

Trained Composter Recyclers are sustainability ambassadors. The program teaches workshops, attends community events, operates composting demonstration sites, and shares knowledge with the community.
