Master Recycler Composter training

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.

Do you have a passion for recycling, composting, and waste prevention? If so, then apply to become a Thurston County Master Recycler Composter (MRC) volunteer! MRC volunteers are trained over an extensive five week period on how to reduce waste and increase public awareness of opportunities to recycle and compost in Thurston County. Course graduates agree to give 25 hours of yearly service putting their newly learned skills to use by inspiring others in our community to reduce waste at home and work.

The application deadline for the 2014 class is August 22nd. See class dates and times, or apply to become an MRC. The course fee is $75 which includes all training materials and field trips. A limited amount of scholarships are available to those who demonstrate hardship.
