Clark County’s Master Composter Recycler program is offering a free training this winter for people interested in becoming involved with the program. Anyone interested in composting and recycling and wants to be a part of a local community working toward a sustainable future should consider becoming a Master Composter Recycler volunteer.

Volunteers then share what they learn by completing community service hours in exchange for the training. Volunteers represent the program at community events, maintain compost demonstration sites, and share their knowledge with neighbors and community groups.
