In partnership with WSU Extension and Clallam County Waste Reduction, the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) will offer Master Composter/Recycler Workshops at the Sequim, Forks, and Port Angeles Libraries. These workshops are free to all Clallam County residents, but registration is required.  Workshops will be offered on Tuesday, February 26 from 10am – 5pm at the Sequim Branch Library; Saturday, March 23 from 11am – 5pm at the Forks Branch Library; and on Saturday, June 8 from 10am – 5pm at the Port Angeles Main Library.

Master Composters and Recyclers are volunteer waste prevention specialists who are trained in partnership with WSU-Extension and Clallam County Department of Public Works. The program highlights critical waste prevention activities with local solutions working with our local haulers, governments, and organizations to create best practices and educate community members. Topics will include: an introduction to the history and systems of waste and recycling, thoughtful consumerism, composting and food waste prevention, recycling right, and reducing, repurposing, reusing, and upcycling.

This program is generously supported by the Friends of the Library and is a partnership with the Clallam County Waste Prevention Program and WSU Extension.
