Become a master recycler
Join fellow waste reduction enthusiasts and become an advocate for the three Rs in your community as a Hennepin County master recycler and composter.
Master recycler and composters are trained on waste prevention, recycling and composting through an extensive six week course that features industry experts and field trips to local waste processing and recycling facilities.
Once training is complete, participants commit to volunteer 30 hours. Volunteer activities include staffing booths at events and designing and implementing waste reduction and recycling projects. When the 30 hour commitment is fulfilled, participants are certified master recycler and composters and encouraged to continue volunteer service.
