Volunteers needed to help with backyard composting program

Author: SuperUser Account/Thursday, May 28, 2015/Categories: Uncategorized, Living

The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources is seeking volunteers to help with the Riverside County backyard composting program.  Volunteer who want to become "master composters" will attend a training course for four Saturdays, and will then donate 40 hours back to the program.  Volunteers are needed to staff Saturday morning workshops, classroom presentations, and community group presentations and outreach events.  It's a great way to learn more about recycling organic resources and then share that knowledge. The training class will be on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. starting Aug. 1 and running through Aug. 22.  The department will provide books and study materials. Limited seats are available and candidates must apply online at: http://www.rcwaste.org/.

You are invited to attend an information session to learn more about becoming a volunteer for the master composter program on June 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources headquarters, 14310 Frederick St. in Moreno Valley. Anyone interested in attending should send an RSVP email to  WasteCompRecyc@co.riverside.ca.us .

For more information, send an email to WasteCompRecyc@co.riverside.ca.us or call Riverside County Department of Waste Resources (951) 486-3200.
