Become a Master Composter/Recycler!

We are recruiting residents for the 2023 Master Composter/Recycler class. The Master Composter/Recycler Program is a six week course that teaches residents how to reduce waste through home composting and recycling. This year the free program is back in person with weekly meetings and extended learning opportunities.

There are two components to the Master Composter/Recycler program – training and volunteering.

The training consists of six classes taught by Master Composters/Recyclers and Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System employees. Topics covered in these classes include the benefits of home composting, the science of composing, compost pile building and troubleshooting, vermicomposting (composting with worms), recycling and household hazardous waste disposal, and community education and outreach.

Those who complete the program agree to volunteer at least 40 hours sharing their knowledge with others. Volunteers teach Spokane residents about reducing waste through composting and recycling, presentations, working outreach booths, and at clean-up events.

When you complete the six-week Master Composter/Recycler Program you will receive a free compost bin and certificate of completion.

The six-week Master Composter/Recycler Program will start Wednesday, March 29. To register for the 2023 Master Composter/Recycler class, fill out this registration form and email it to Kris Major. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 3. For additional information email Kris Major or call 509.625.6521.
