The Master Recycler Composters of Thurston County is a volunteer service program. The County trains Master Recycler Composter volunteers to become community educators. Topics include solid waste issues such as waste reduction, recycling, and composting within Thurston County.
Participants agree to volunteer as a community educator. They share waste prevention information with the citizens of Thurston County. Master Recycler Composter volunteers participate in a wide range of county waste prevention activities and community events. They can also work in their own neighborhoods, schools, or workplaces. Projects include encouraging waste prevention, recycling and composting.
If you have a strong desire to learn more about recycling & composting, and are willing to share with others in the community, then apply today to become a Master Recycler Composter volunteer!
