MASTER RECYCLER COMPOSTER PROGRAM - King County
King County’s Master Recycler Composter (MRC) program is an adult education program that provides free training about waste reduction, recycling, solid waste impacts on climate change and public outreach. Education efforts such as the MRC program play an important role in helping citizens reduce waste.
The MRC program training is open to all King County residents living outside the cities of Seattle and Milton. In exchange for the free training, program graduates are expected to volunteer 25 hours for public outreach opportunities planned by county staff. We are looking for outgoing, engaging individuals who want to inspire others to reduce waste and recycle more.
One training will be offered in 2014, on Saturdays from 9am – 2pm, May 3 and May 10 at Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St., Kent, WA 98030. Both dates require attendance. An optional but recommended field trip will take place on Saturday, May 17 from 9am – 2pm.
Applications are due April 30, 2014!
