Composting in Whatcom County

  Whatcom County is dedicated to reducing the amount of waste generated in the county and managing resources wisely. Each year, WSU Extension trains Master Composter/Recycler volunteers who then provide advice and leadership about resource conservation and sustainable living throughout the county.

Master Composter/Recyclers learn about composting, and building soil. They discover what local scientists are discovering about compost, and some do their own home research. They learn how people and businesses recycle in Whatcom County, and basic tips on reducing, reusing and recycling.
