Clark County’s Master Composter Recycler program is offering a free training for people interested in becoming program volunteers. Anyone interested in composting and recycling, and who wants to become a sustainability ambassador should consider becoming a Master Composter Recycler volunteer.

The free training provides volunteers with the tools and knowledge to build a hot compost pile, tend a worm bin, clean with green cleaners and reduce waste. Volunteers are asked to share what they learn by completing community service hours in exchange for the training. Volunteers represent the program at community events, maintain compost demonstration sites, and share their knowledge with neighbors and community members.
