Become a Master Recycler
Join fellow waste reduction enthusiasts and inspire others to reduce, reuse and recycle as a Hennepin County Master Recycler/Composter!
Master Recycler/Composters (MRCs) are trained on waste prevention, recycling and composting, and effective communication skills through a six-week course, with one class each week, taught by industry experts and community leaders. The training also includes field trips to local waste processing and recycling facilities when possible.
Once training is complete, participants commit to volunteering 30-hours putting their skills to work on projects and activities that minimize waste and provide waste reduction, recycling and composting education. MRCs have the flexibility to pursue and create waste-reduction focused volunteer opportunities that interest them and serve their communities’ unique needs.
