The Master Composter/Recycler Program educates the community on backyard composting and other organic waste diversion methods and waste reduction, recycling. Trained volunteers do this education through Backyard Composting workshops, composting how-to information, low-cost Community Wormshops, composting demonstration sites, teacher worm bin workshops and speakers for neighborhood or community groups. The program also offers composting books to purchase, and a reduced price compost bin.
Nature recycles dead organic material by breaking it down, with the help of microorganisms and invertebrate decomposers, into a soil enriching amendment called compost. Compost is made whether or not we are involved in the process, but there are things we can do to ensure it happens rapidly and without odors. For more information, check out any of our leaflets listed below or contact the Master Composter/Recyclers at Clark County Composts, by email or at 360.397.2121 ext 4961.
