Master Composter/Recycler Program:

Rethink + Prevent + Inspire

Who We Are:

Master Composters + Recyclers are volunteer waste prevention specialists who are trained in partnership with WSU-Extension and Clallam County Department of Public Works. The program highlights critical waste prevention activities with local solutions working with our local haulers, governments and organizations to create best practices and educate community members. Share your perspective on how our community can rethink and prevent waste!

This program is a free, five week series investigating waste in our society and how to prevent it! It will connect volunteers with sustainability experts and educate through hands on participation in how our local waste systems work.


Topics include:

  • Introduction to the history and systems of waste & recycling
  • Thoughtful consumerism
  • Composting & Food Waste Prevention
  • Recycling Right: Clean, Empty, Dry!
  • Waste Prevention: Reduce, Repurpose, Reuse, Repair, & Up-cycle
  • Field Trip – Regional Transfer Station

Join the Team:

To earn your Master Composter+Recycler Certification, you must complete the 5 week program, and volunteer 10 hours to inspire waste prevention in your community – volunteering at events, assisting with workshops, engaging with community partners and educating our community at large.
