The Riverside County Waste Management Department is seeking volunteers to help with the Riverside County Backyard Composting Program.   Volunteer "master composters" will attend a training course for four Saturdays, and will then donate 40 hours back to the program.  Volunteers are needed for staffing Saturday morning workshops, classroom presentations, and community group presentations and outreach.  It's a great way to learn more about recycling organic resources and then share that knowledge through program presentations.  The training class will be on Saturdays, from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Aug. 1 through Aug. 22.  Books and study materials will be provided by the department.  Limited seats are available and candidates must apply online at:

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 Waste Management headquarters, 14310 Frederick St. in Moreno Valley. Those interested in attending should send an RSVP email to .

For more information, send inquiries to or call the department at (951) 486-3200.
