Master Recyclers are trained on waste prevention and composting through an extensive six week course that features industry experts and field trips to local waste processing and recycling facilities.

Once the training is complete, participants commit to volunteer activities include staffing booths at events, or help with community projects like Fix-it Clinics, event recycling, and green teams at work.

Learn from the Experts
Join 30 recycling enthusiasts in an extensive six-week course that features lessons from industry experts and tours of local waste and recycling facilities. You'll learn about: 

  • Sustainable behavior change theory

  • Residential recycling and waste hauling programs
  • Event and public space recycling

Classes are taught by professionals from the public and private sector who are working on innovative solutions to environmental challenges.
