Volunteers needed to become master composters with county backyard composting program

Author: SuperUser Account/Wednesday, March 16, 2016/Categories: Uncategorized, Living

The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources is seeking volunteers to help with the backyard composting program.  Volunteers will attend a training course for eight Tuesdays and will then donate 40 hours back to the program.  Volunteers are needed to staff Saturday morning workshops, classroom presentations, community group presentations and to do outreach. 

It is a great way to learn more about recycling organic resources and then sharing that knowledge through program presentations. Students will learn various methods of composting, the best materials to use, materials to avoid, and they will build and study active compost piles for hands-on learning.  Books and study materials will be provided by the department.  The training class will be held Tuesdays in Moreno Valley from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 12 through May 31. The class is available to Riverside County residents only and seating is limited.  Candidates must apply online at: http://www.rcwaste.org/

Send inquires to WasteCompRecyc@rcwaste.org or call Riverside County Department of Waste Resources (951) 486-3200.
