This popular course consists of eight weeknight classes and two Saturday field trips. Instruction includes topics such as thoughtful consumption, recycling markets and processes, hazardous household products, composting, green building and deconstruction. The course is a blend of presentations by professionals in the field, peer group discussion and project development.
Registration for the spring course is now Closed. The next course will be September/October in Multnomah County. Registration is not yet available.

It's what makes the Master Recycler Program so special: participants put their skills to work by helping others learn the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Master Recyclers staff information booths at community events, provide presentations, and work on personal projects. They also work to inspire their own neighbors and co-workers.
Attendance at all classes and tours and an agreement to complete the 30 volunteer hours is required to be considered for the Master Recycler Certification.
