County Waste Resources Department to offer Master Composter Certificate Training

The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources has offered Backyard Composting classes and workshops for 30 years to provide residents with the basic knowledge on how to compost organic waste from home, safely and efficiently.  In addition to these basic composting classes, the department will be offering a Master Composter Certificate Training program with a more advanced look at home composting and a variety of methods that can be used, more study of the composting process, and learning more about the waste stream in Riverside County. 

There are two methods of training available, virtual online or in-person.   Virtual online course will begin July 1 and will allow 6 months for participants to study and complete the course from home through online study materials and quizzes to earn the Master Composter Training Certificate.  The In-person training class will be on Saturdays from 7:00 am to 1:00 p.m. in Moreno Valley, beginning July 8 through July 29.  Books and study materials will be provided by the department.  Instructor will guide students through the course and students will build a compost pile and build their own vermicompost bin.  Limited seats are available for the in-person training course. 

Registration is required for either training course:
