The Master Composter / Recyclers of Cowlitz County are a volunteer service program. Master Composter / Recycler (MCR) volunteers are trained on how to reduce waste and increase public awareness of opportunities to prevent waste, recycle and compost in Cowlitz County.  They are green ambassadors for Cowlitz County and its communities.

Course graduates give a minimum of 25 hours of annual service as they put their new skills to use. They work with local organizations, community members, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, or at special events encouraging waste prevention, recycling and composting. ReuseMCR’s can design their own projects or work existing ones. On-going continuing education opportunities are provided.
