Certified Master Composting Class with Valley Community for Recycling Solutions
The Borough offers composting classes free of charge to Mat-Su residents. More information can be found on our Facebook page. Registration is REQUIRED by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 907-795-3722.
Our Goal: Organic matter in the landfill takes up valuable space and creates greenhouse gases. The purpose of this Mat-Su Borough program is to keep this valuable material out of our landfill and reduce our carbon emissions. Our goal is to save you money by reducing waste disposal costs and empower you to transform organic waste into beneficial compost. We provide you free training and a Compost Hotline.
The Certified Master Composting Class are 1-day courses where you'll learn additional compost strategies, and how you can apply these to assist residents, businesses, schools, dog mushers, food services, farmers, stable managers, and organizations to develop scaled-up compost operations. We're asking you to help educate others. We'll review the basics and then discover how to: blend and compost a wider variety of feedstocks for proper C:N ratios; manage and trouble-shoot piles for moisture, temperature, aeration & odor; process larger-scale volumes of compost with static & thermal pile methods.
PREREQUISITE: BOTH Backyard Composter Certificate and Vermi-Composter Certificate required.
