Waste Management Branch / Registration Deadline: March 12, 2010.
Once a year, the Waste Management Branch hosts the Master Composter-Recycler Program. Over a 3 weeks course schedule (Tues./Thursday evenings and Saturday) volunteers will learn about environmental stewardship in our city, such as: history of waste management; home composting; household hazardous waste; vermin-composting and residential recycling.
This course offers in-class instruction as well as several field trips to various City facilities. After finishing the course, graduates complete 35 hours of volunteer activity promoting the four R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle and recover. Graduates become important resources in their communities as they broaden awareness about the importance of composting and recycling.
Examples of volunteer activities: help with Reuse Fairs & the Reuse Centre; helping friends/neighbours with composting problems; public education display booths; assisting with programs and maintenance at the City Compost Education Centres; assisting at various demonstration gardens and general public and school presentations. There are many other opportunities for volunteers to contribute and volunteers are able to choose the opportunities that interest them the most. Curious about recycling and composting and sharing your knowledge with others, then apply to become a Master Composter-Recycler Volunteer!
Course Dates: April 13 – May 1, 2010 -Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Saturdays all day – for three consecutive weeks. Join us!
