[ARCHIVED] Master Composters/Recyclers kick off 2020 class.

For more than 30 years, the Spokane County Master Composters/Recyclers have taught others the value of reducing waste through better recycling and home composting Applications are now being accepted for the next class sponsored by the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System (SCRSWS). The course is free and open to county residents who want to learn simple, natural ways to build and retain healthy soil, reduce waste and pollution, and make a valuable contribution to their community.

The Master Composter/Recycler training program is composed of six sessions that include lecture, discussion and hands-on activities, as well as participation at the annual Arbor Day Compost Fair at Spokane’s Finch Arboretum.

Classes are held on six consecutive Mondays from March 23 through April 27 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., and two Saturdays, March 28 from 8:30 a.m. to noon and April 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the Spring Compost Fair. Most sessions are held at the WSU/Spokane County Extension Building at 222 N. Havana.

Classes are taught by Master Composters/Recyclers and SCRSWS staff. After completion of all class sessions, participants receive a certificate of completion and a complimentary compost bin.

Individuals who complete the program agree to volunteer at least 40 hours helping others learn more about composting and recycling through presentations, working in outreach booths and at clean-up events, or whatever activities fit their skills. This involvement is in exchange for training, materials and the compost bin.

Class size is limited, and applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to apply is March 6. For applications or additional information, visit www.spokanecountysolidwaste.org or call 509-625-6580.
