Clark County’s Composter Recycler program is accepting applications for a no-cost seven-course training program.

Participants who complete the training become certified Composter Recyclers and join a group of environmental advocates who want to learn about low-waste living and share sustainability information with the community.

The training prepares participants to take steps to reduce food waste, replace chemical products with do-it-yourself green cleaners, and collect contaminant-free recyclables at home. Certified Composter Recyclers will then share what they learn with the community through volunteer service hours.

As part of the training, participants receive a compost bin and a green cleaning kit. The classes will be held in-person from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday evenings.

The trainings include the following: preventing food waste (Jan. 31); backyard composting (Feb. 7); worm bin composting (Feb. 21); lasagna garden composting (Feb. 28); green cleaning (March 6); reduce, reuse, recycle (March 13); and sustainability ambassador orientation (March 20).
