Master Recycler/Composter Certification Training
The Master Recycler/Composter (MRC) program educates volunteers about waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting. Most people know they should reduce, reuse and recycle to protect the environment, but what people think is not always what they do! Master Recycler/Composters bridge the gap between awareness and action by motivating people to reduce waste in their homes and workplaces. Thirty independent community volunteer hours will be required in the year following the class. You are a part of something bigger than Clay County and bigger than Minnesota! The MRC program is training residents just like you across the country. Portland, Oregon, has the oldest program started in 1990. It has been so successful in Oregon that it has spread to Washington, Arizona, Ohio and more. Additional field trip opportunities will be available. Fee includes supplies.
