Meet others who are excited about waste reduction and have the chance to inspire others to help reduce waste in Dakota County. Over a 6-week period, participants will hear presentations from local and regional experts on waste reduction, recycling, composting and solid waste and go on field trips to relevant sites.
After completing the course, graduates agree to volunteer 30 hours of public outreach. Giving back is what makes the Master Recycler/Composter program special. Participants put their skills to work by helping others learn to reduce their waste and create a better environment.
Along with your Master Recycler/Composter peers, Dakota County staff is available to help you be successful in your outreach. Resources such as brochures and educational displays are available.
Master Recycler/Composters will be notified of many opportunities to complete their volunteer hours.
To ensure a positive learning experience and adequate support for volunteers, class size is limited to 30 people on a first-come, first-served basis. A waiting list is available.
